It’s (supposedly) that time, as we near the halfway point in the year, when the skies bless us with that life-giving gift that is water. For me, that means tons of images of one of my favourite things in the whole wide world. Birds in the rain.
I love the rain as it adds that magical element to an otherwise static frame.
When everything is wet, colours seem to pop more. Blacks are blacker.
But not too wet, though! This Yellow-headed Caracara seems to be a little peeved about the weather.
I was photographing this unnaturally-tame Ringed Kingfisher when a heavy shower of rain rolled in. Exactly what I needed. And this is not sarcasm!
