Black-Crested Coquette (Lophornis helenae) Laguan del Largarto, Costa Rica. My wife spotted this elusive Coquette while I was busy looking for Green Macaws. We watched and photographed for some time as it sat twitching its head back and forth. Then the moment it spread its tailfeathers I clicked the shutter. A flash was used.
