Per the title, below I offer up photos of hummingbirds in the rain.
When I walk in the rain (usually because I’m caught in it, not because I’m wont to do so, no matter how attractive it sounds), I don’t perceive much distance between raindrops . . . but a hummingbird’s perception is much different.
True, this rain was not a deluge by any stretch of the imagination. Still . . .
. . . even in moderately heavy rain, I don’t see the birds getting hit by many drops. They are, after all, tiny things.
Sometimes, it’s misting, and the drops form on the feeder as opposed to dropping from the sky.
Here, it looks like a raindrop is about to nail this fellow right in the back of the neck!
Next up, is a trio of photos of one bird.
We now come to my favorite part . . . finding the hummingbird!
OK, that was probably too easy, so lemme do another . . . but I’ll lead up to it. First, a bird on a wire.
Then, the obligatory slideshow . . .
Here is the slideshow for this series: LINK.
Lastly, I finish with one of my favorite activities. A slightly less easy ‘find the hummingbird’ photo!
That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.
