Make the rain disappear from your picture

There was a bird that I was taking a picture of. However, no matter how I focused, the camera kept capturing the rain. The rain was not particularly heavy which is why I could see the bird.

Then I recalled that there was a trick that you could adjust the shutter speed to mitigate the effects of the rain. Which resulted in a picture that captured the bird. The raindrops have disappeared.

I have done some work on the lighting. There is a reason why it is not a solution to keep using the fastest shuttle speed as it also limits the amount of light captured.

This is how the bird looks like on a sunny day. It is a Savanna Nightjar. It is a nocturnal bird which is why its eyes are closed or half opened in the day. Its feather match the roof tiles.
