[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [Portuguese]
"Siriema are a small and ancient family of tropical South American birds, belonging to the family Cariamidae, that are related to the rails and bustards.

They are terrestrial birds which run rather than fly (though they are able to fly for short distances.) They have long legs, necks and tails, but only short wings, reflecting their way of life. They are brownish birds with short bills and erectile crests, found on fairly dry open grasslands.

They feed on insects, snakes and lizards. There are two species.

* Red-legged Seriema, or Crested Cariama, Cariama cristata. This is found from eastern Brazil, to central Argentina. It nests on the ground, laying two eggs.
* Black-legged Seriema, Chunga burmeisteri. This is found in northwest Argentina and Paraguay. It nests in a tree, laying two eggs.

The two extant species of seriema are thought to be the only descendants of a group of gigantic (up to ten feet tall) carnivorous Pleistocene "terror birds", the phorusrhacoids, which are known from fossils.

The seriemas have an extensible second claw that they can lift from the ground. Although this resembles the dinosaurian sickle claw of velociraptor and its relatives, it is not curved enough to be a real weapon."

This I thought very young and it was possible the approach. I think she was more curious than me... He... He... He...

Thank you for the visit.

hola José,
Excelente primer plano por ser un pájaro silvestre! Buenos detalles y composición, aunque por lo menos en el monitor que lo veo está algo gris la imágen.
De todos modos buen trabajo.

Ola José,
Excelente retrato! Foco preciso nos olhos brlhantes da seriema. E olha que a seriema é um animal arisco!

Boa foto da nossa Siriema Reynaldo.
Um perfeito "portrait". A baixa profundidade de campo devido a grande distância focal ou a proximidade do tema principal também deixou a foto ótima.
Tentei um workshop, espero que goste.
Nota ok também!!!

Hi Jose,
Excellent shot of this ancient bird. Sharp and clear against nice background. TFS

Apliando-se a imagem é que se pode notar a nitidez, realmente você conseguiu uma foto bem próxima. Uma excelente captura por sinal. Boas cores e um bom enquadramento.
