A white-necked jacobin enjoying the rain

This photo is of a juvenile white-necked jacobin (hummingbird) holding its head up and savoring the rain. Taken from the verandah of the Asa Wright Nature Center during a short rain shower. These hummingbirds are the only one (of the 18 types found there) that visibly play around in the rain.
