CommentWe spent a couple of hours each day with this fellow but were unsuccessful in capturing the full-frontal display. This back-shot was the best I could manage. Each morning he was visited by at least one female but he usually moved off the main stage to a more private adjacent branch where we could see and hear the display but the intervening vegetation made it impossible to get a clear shot.
