This hummingbird named the Glittering-throated emerald is common in the Pantanal area, Brazil. It is real challenge to catch a glimpse of it, and even more to nail it on a photo.  It is interesting that the hummingbirds of the new world, has its parallel in the old word; the sunbirds. They are extremely similar in habits and appearance but not at all related. A school book example of parallel evolution.

Best, Thorsten
