During a rain shower in August, this young hummingbird landed on the tomato cage in my garden. He was having the best time flapping and swooning while the drops of rain hit him. I was shooting the pictures out from my opened kitchen window, but it didn’t disturb him. He was in the moment and loving the shower.
