[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
It was a dark and cloudy afternoon and the rain was coming down - when we watched a tiny hummingbird doing a rain dance not far from out kitchen window. I'm posting this rather poor image simply to share a remarkable sight - it was very clear it was thoroughly enjoying itself, spreading its wings and dancing on its little twig

I believe this is a female ruby-throated humming bird - we have seen what might be a young male which has a tiny red spot developing under its chin at the feeder.
