Picaflor Común (spanish)
Glittering-bellied Emerald (english)
This hummingbird is one of most abundant of the Pampas zone. It displays sexual dimorphism: the male is green emerald and with red bill; the female presents gray belly, with the green back more extinguished, in the ocular zone has a dark gray strip.Gray bill. This hummingbird, was decided to feed itself stopped in a branch, very strange situation since it does flying suspended in the same place, characteristic of this order of birds. For that reason the title.

Hi Hernan,
Excellent shot on this hummingbird. I have never observed one eating from a sitting position, always hovering. Very colorful, and the detail is very good. Excellent notes with this. Nice job!

Very nice shot with great POV.
Colors are good.

thanks Ana:)

Hernan, amável foto deste beija-flor - que é o nome do pássaro aqui no Brasil.

Gosto das cores e da composição. Talvez eu tentasse acrescentar um pouco mais de nitidez no Photoshop, mais isso é só uma opinião.
