Competing with a calm muggy breeze, hummingbirds visit our garden daily during the long searing Mississippi summer months. They bring a gift of joy to our world while flying through the day in a joyful jaunt on whispered wing beats and iridescent plumes. Hovering on a flurry of air, dipping into the blaze of blossoms the hummingbirds empty the flowers and then suddenly vanish in a fleeting blur – then, pivoting on a whim return for more.
Catching a glimpse of hummingbirds darting and dancing in a downpour is especially thrilling. They love the rain.Below are a few images of some playtime in the rain.
