It’s been a long time since we’ve experienced a long, slow, soothing rain. What a wonderful feeling to awaken “close up” to the sight, sound, and smell of RAIN! The critters on Glencoe Swale must have been just as excited; their calls, songs, and activity levels were markedly aroused by the precipitation.
Of the hundred or so photos I shot while observing moisture-inspired exuberance, these are my favorites…
“Close Up” of an Anna’s Hummingbird and raindrops.
Humming in the Rain
I’m humming in the rain
Just humming in the rain
What a glorious feelin’
The sun’s in my heart
And I’m ready for love
Let the stormy clouds chase
Everyone from the place
