IIRC, all were taken on overcast/rainy/drizzly​/foggy days. We often get rain forest type weather here on the mountain in May, so it's nothing new to shoot in, lol.

Ooh, sorry All, rough couple of days (though it didn't slow down my hummingbird photography :D ). Thanks for the comments. They're greatly appreciated! :)

There will be days when you get the shot(s) you missed days, months or years before.

Awesome images Ian!
It's sometimes hard to tell who's the star in your images.....flora or fauna. Visual interest abounds!
I love the complementary colors in the last 2 captures the best, but it was a difficult decision to make :)
