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.

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.

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.
