Lovely portrait. Perfect shutter speed for capturing the movement in those raindrops.

Great image in the circumstances. Particularly like the splash on the bird's head.
This storm system has brought some very strange weather with it

The birds seem to love the rain. Good to see a beautiful blackbird. They don't seem to come to my garden any more - mainly starlings and doves.

Same here Lillian, lots of the wet stuff falling out of the sky this morning ☔ She looks like I've felt about being out in it! 😁 A great detailed shot here, and the inclusion of the rain gives it extra appeal 👍

Great image of that pouring rain on your lovely feathered friend!

A wonderful capture, Lillian - not sure that Mrs Blackbird is impressed with the weather conditions, though!!
What caught my eye are the two 'splashes' above her head that seem to have bounced back up.

That's what I call my female blackbird. She is so friendly now, and stays in the garden when I'm out there.
Yours is getting slightly wet.
