I gave luck. After 14 days of rain...! when I arrived at the forest of Avaré, there it was this group of birds in the edge of the lake. To the whole they were 8. calm Waters. Quite unfriendly I only got some pictures for the tele of 200 mm.

Common name: Quero-quero
Another name: téu-téu, terém-terém and frighten-herd
Name in English: Southern Lapwing
Name in Spanish: Tero común
Scientific name: Vanellus Chilensis
I crib: Chordata
Class: Ave
Order: Charadriiformes
Family: Charadriidae
Characteristic: It possesses 2 rams under the wings. He/she makes the nest in the ground.

Geographical distribution: South America, from Argentina and east of Bolivia to the right margin of low Amazon, in Brazil.
Habitat: He/she inhabits the great humid prairies and cast on the shore them of the rivers and ponds. I want-want is it a bird of the size of a partridge and it is characterized by the ash-clear general color, with black ornaments in the head, chest and tail. The belly is white and the wing has green-metallic feathers. It presents a plume in the head's subsequent area; the beak and the legs are vermelhadas and he/she has a pair of rams in the encounter of the wings. I want-want is it always the first to give the alarm when some intruder invades their domains. It is a quarrelsome bird that it provokes quarrel with any other species inhabitant of the same prairie. The capybaras remove good advantage of the coexistence with I want-want him/it, therefore, according to the intonation, the scream of that bird can mean danger. Then the great rodents seek refuge in the water. I want-want him/it, it moves away the intruders that he/she approaches his/her nest, pretending to be wounded.

I thank the visit.

Thank you for the critic.

I don't know the African birds well but I think they are a species of Plovers.(Vanellus or hoplopterus or Chettusia). nice shot but sharpness and composition isn't enough I think. TFS.

Nice shot good colours balance and position of the birds in the frame, but the focus isn't really good.

Even thought the sharpness is not quite 100% the shot is still pleasing. The composition and exposure is good though.

Thanks for posting

Olá, José Reynaldo. Infelizmente, não poderei ajudá-lo quanto à identificação dos insetos.

Gosto da foto. Belo ângulo e bela composição. O workshop tem cores bonitas.

Gostei dos pássaros, não conheço a espécie, parente do plover?!!??
Boa composição, cores, pela distância faltou um pouco de definição. Melhor sorte na próxima.

Tá na hora de mudar a nota... agora já sabe quem são... e o tal de okan acertou... mas africano? Haha...
desculpa não ter visto esta.

Bonitos bichinhos! A foto tem bonitas cores, composição luz e detalhes!
Tem uma boa semana Ana:)
