Hummingbirds in the Rain - August 07, 2011

A bit of rainy day macro photography with the Hummingbirds just outside the kitchen window as the subjects.  With the rain gauge measuring 1.47" of rain today it's a wonder these birds aren't soaked through.

You can see some of the rain bouncing off this males head.

 and a white fly hitching a ride on his bill in this shot.

 The lone female that came by today didn't seem to wet for all the rain that had just stopped coming down.

and a bit of a wing shot as she drinks and runs....
