Rufous Hummingbird in Fountain

When I lived on San Juan Island in Washington State one of my favourite jobs was watering the vegetables on a summer's evening when Hummingbirds would come, one by one, to take a shower in the spray from the hose. Here a male Rufous Hummingbird is enjoying the luxury of a shower in a fountain while begonia leaves and fuchsia flowers dip into the pool.
