Green Mantle

Caria mantinea

Description:

The genus Caria contains some of the most beautiful and elusive species on Earth. Although fairly common they are rarely seen due to their secretive habits, and are virtually impossible to follow in flight. Once seen these glittering jewels of the Amazon are never forgotten.

Habitat:

Green Mantle is confined to primary rainforest at altitudes between about 100-800m. It is usually found in the vicinity of rocky or pebble-strewn streams.

Wonderful colors!

Many thanks to all of you who enjoy my shots, you give me the mood to go on...
A special thank to Shebebusy and James who discovered that all my pictures have been at least favorited once. I had not noticed that and feel very happy.
Now I must try to keep the level...I cross my fingers!!!
