Made a short trip to St. Lucia and spent some time with this little lady. There was a male around too, but he never came around very close to me to get good photos.. The male has quite a stunning bright green crest, while in typical fashion the female doesn't need to impress.

A poor shot of a male, it was raining and quite dark so the shutter speed was too low and he was shaking his rump (and blinked his eyes).. :rolleyes:

There will be days when you get the shot(s) you missed days, months or years before.
