Beija-flor tesoura (Eupetomena macroura), clicado em Goiânia - GO, Brasil.
Eupetomena macroura (Gmelin, 1788): tesoura; swallow-tailed hummingbird c.
Destaca-se das espécies estudadas pelo maior porte e pela cauda comprida e bifurcada, o que lhe valeu o nome popular. Como é comum entre os beija-flores, é uma espécie agressiva que disputa com outras o seu território e fontes de alimento.
Nidificação: o ninho, em forma de tigela, é assentado numa forquilha de arbusto ou árvores, a cerca de 2 a 3 m do solo. O material utilizado na construção é composto por fibras vegetais incluindo painas, musgos e liquens, aderidos externamente com teias de aranhas.
Hábitat: capoeiras, cerrados, borda de matas e jardins.
Tamanho: 17,0 cm

Good catch Paulo. Nice colors, but I am not too keen on the background. Was the flash you used the built in on camera unit or something like the Canon 580? If it was the 580, try using it on manual at 1/64 - 1/128 power. It gives a faster strobe and stops movement easier.

Hello Paulo,
This a new hummingbird to me. You have captured the head and body sharply and for that you must have credit. BG is a good contrast but strange color.
TFS, regards, Ivan
