Lesser Violetear (Colibri cyanotus)

The Lesser Violetear belongs to the same genus as the Brown Violetear, however they look pretty different due to the overall color. This species is by the most part green, however it has a big violet ear patch that is visible from any angle (not caused by iridescence) and also shows some blue-violet glow on the chest. The wing is dark brown above and light brown on the underside. After perching, this species of hummingbird has an habit of stretching its wings to the back for a moment.
