Tiny Dancer in the Rain

This little hummingbird seems to really enjoy the rain. Yesterday as the rain poured, I noticed him just hanging out at the feeder and especially on the little perch I have up for him. I  managed to get out on the deck, slowly without him seeing me, and get a few pics.

You have to be very patient and still to get these photos. They are very aware of any movement around them. Survival skills. And they are so tiny, I have to get as close as possible for a good photo.

Reminded me of the song Tiny Dancer by Elton John.

Enjoy nature photography. Amateur self-taught photographer and love every minute of the photos from my yard and Dustin's garden. Sunset views from my deck are very peaceful to watch, capture and share. I have two cats, Brendel and the Dude. I share both special and funny moments I capture of them with you.

Also enjoy seeing and reading your posts from all over the world.

  1. Awe, and what a perfect Title. I love that song, well I cant really think of one of his I don’t like. I do know some facts about this little girl and rain. Birds do not like the rain and will take shelter from it, except for hummers. They face starvation so they have to, whether rain or shine have to keep going, they cannot afford to take shelter.

    • Thanks Kim, it was definitely a challenge to get this photo. But was so worth it. I have seen other birds in the rain but now that you mention it, the hummingbirds seem the most active. Thanks for sharing!
