Empress Brilliant (Heliodoxa imperatrix)

The Empress Brilliant is a pretty big hummingbird with a weird face, due to it being elongated towards the start of the bill. The male is entirely green with an iridescent violet throat, and sports a long forked tail. The female instead has white underparts with green spotting all over. Overall the colors are very brilliant, which does match with this species name.
