Don't you know it's raining?
of coarse I do!! silly bird...can't you see my matching camera raincoat in same colour as my jacket?
Nobody was venturing out in the rain...but let it be known
my camera and I are fitted out ready to go, what's a bit of rain?
hand held, high iso, but too dark really for a faster shutter

Another from the Cloud mountains in Costa Rica.
look at that amazing beak, it just pierces the flower for the pollen, will put on a version for you...cheeky bird!

thanks everyone for stopping by
sorry I am not on swimming feels a little too cold...when it gets warmerWinkWink
but I will put on eventually

As a colour protagonist I couldn't agree more.
