The Green Violetear
Colibri thalassinus

It is an attractive hummingbird that is a resident breeder in highlands from south-central Mexico, (the Trans-Mexican Volcanic Belt), to western Panama and in the Andes from northern Venezuela to Bolivia. It shows seasonal movements and wanders to the United States and even Canada.

The male Green Violet-ear is grass green above and becomes a bronze color on the rump and uppertail coverlets and is 11 — 11.5 cm (4.25 — 4.5 in) in length.The tail is square and slightly notched with a broad dark blue subterminal band. It has a large violet central breast spot on the upper breast and a violet-blue band along the chin that often connects to the the violet-blue "ear," giving the bird its name.The female is similar to the male, but averages smaller and slightly duller, with a narrower violet band on the chin. The juvenile is a much duller version of the adult. Its plumage is generally olive green overall with dull gray wash to the underparts. The violet breast spot is either indistinct, incomplete, or absent. A molting juvenile may show bright metallic color in patches, particularly on the throat or breast.

Hi Selen,
Thanks for your kind words on my recent picture.
This picture of a beautiful Hummingbird from Peru is a prize shot.
The diagonal stick and the bird sitting diagonally on it makes it a superb composition too.The strong flashlight has also done wonders to the picture.
Thanks for sharing this masterpiece andf best regards.

İlk kez burda görüyorum bu türü ve çok güzel çok renkli

Hello Selen,

WOW!!! What a remarkable picture of a splendid bird! The iridescent colors are wondeful! Excellent POV and sharpness. The only thing is that I would have removed the second point of light within the eye caused by the flash.

Good work and TFS!
