About This Image

Rufous hummingbird laying and splashing in the water on our front patio stream, his beak is immersed right in the water, had never seen this before, and you can see where he's churning the water up with his wings. There are 2 sprays of water droplets/splashes beyond the rear of his body.
I watched as he paddled/skimmed across the water like a little boat, first time I'd seen one do that, altho had seen them bathe many times.

Hi Anne, many thanks for your nice comments. I wish you could have seen this too, the little hummers really enjoy bathing. I got some more images of them bathing today.

That must have really been something to see. He figured how to get the most water-fast.
