Raindancing hummingbird

On a dark grey, rainy day, I suddenly noticed this female ruby-throated humming bird having the time of its life dancing between the raindrops as it perched on a small branch near our kitchen window. It was clearly doing this for enjoyment, and was oblivious to me when I grabbed my camera with the long 300 mm lense to capture several photographs.
