.The rain was spectacular. It came down in big, fat drops--lots of it! Then, it tapered off, and the birds began singing again. A few flew to the feeder, and I wondered if they might still come with an open window. The thing is that I can't use flash when they come to this window, and they are usually backlit.
.I opened the window nice and wide, thanking the Lord that we are not in mosquito weather. I draped a black backdrop over me and knelt next to the window. As the kids passed through the room, my wife made sure they didn't approach the window, so that I would have a better chance of getting a bird.
.I got a few pictures. These poor birds were all drenched. I wasn't sure how they would react to the flash... well, this is it! They each flew away as I set off the flash. Wow, they're fast!!
