Hummingbird waits out the rain in Costa Rica

This hummingbird relentlessly tried to drink from the nectar of the flowers but was repeatedly thwarted by the afternoon rain showers. After getting wet enough, he decided to wait out the showers under a protective plant. I love the little raindrops on his head and how curiously he watched me photograph him.
