Catching Raindrops On My Tongue

This Ruby-Throated Hummingbird (Archilochus colubris) sat atop the flower in a rain shower and appeared to be trying to catch raindrops on its tongue. Late in the season such as in this photograph, it is difficult for me to tell the difference between the female and the first-year male. (2016)
