The hummingbird appeared after the heavy rainstorms we had yesterday. This morning it was sunny, but torrential rains arrived around two this afternoon. It was quite unexpected to see a hummingbird flitting between the hollyhocks and the new morning glory vines.
After the hummingbird spent a few minutes around the hollyhocks, it flew to the top of the patio ceiling, and touched the surface with his bill. I do not know if the hummingbird is male or female, but for the purposes of this blog I decided to refer to the bird as being male.
