In The Rain

California has been firmly in the grip of heavy rain fed by subtropical moisture for days. San Diego hasn’t been quite as inundated as other parts of the state, but even here it’s been raining pretty much non-stop since Friday, and apparently the worst is yet to come.

So, what does one do if one is a photographer? One goes out and takes photos anyhow! Below are a few pictures I just took during a brief walk through our complex. I’ve never seen quite so many hummingbirds on those feeders. Do they not like to fly in the rain? Or do the flowers they feed on not open in the rain? Anyhow, they let me get very close. I only had my 24-70 mm lens with me, and the shots of them in the slideshow are only very mildly cropped!

    Love your red leaves against the grass. You’ve created the visual poetry of a California winter! Your hummingbird observation is correct–they are very hungry right now since rain washes out the nectar or the flowers are too water-logged to be accessible.
