Photographer's Note

Hummingbirds are obligated to find many flowers to survive, because they spend many energy. During the winter it is worst because there isn't many flowers available. I saw this one in the persimmon tree, very far.
When Jesuits arrived to found São Paulo city, at 16th century, they saw these birds and imagined they were a kind of fast insect.

Beija-flores são obrigados a encontrar muitas flores para se alimentar já que consomem muita energia. Durante o inverno isso é ainda pior, pois não existem tantas flores à disposição. Vi esse pássaro no caquizeiro de casa.
Quando os jesuítas chegaram para fundar SP, no século 16, ficaram surpresos com esse animal, achavam que era uma espécie de inseto muito veloz.
