The rain was pretty steady, so I stayed under cover and watched the behavior of the hummingbirds for a while. This particular Saberwing kept returning to this same perch, so I just went over there, and waited for him to come back. He was somewhat sheltered in the bushes, which helped with regards to the flash lighting up raindrops as they fell.
