Saw plenty of males on a recent trip to Grenada (no decent images though) but would be grateful for confirmation that this is an AC Hummingbird.

I don't know which one it is... but it's a gorgeous hummer Barry. A super flight shot you've taken.

Outstanding in flight capture of this gorgeous female Antillean Crested Hummingbird. Grenada has four species of hummingbirds Purple-throated and Green-throated Carib, Antillean Crested Hummingbird and the Rufous-breasted Hermit. The other females or juveniles do not resemble this bird. Fantastic picture!!!
