Macro Monday - Hummingbird

Earlier this month, we were walking into CVS when I noticed what looked like a small bright piece of paper fluttering in the breeze on the ground just in front of the doorway.  Upon closer inspection, it was this little fella who had apparently flown into the glass doors.  He was still breathing so Craig scooped him (he's better with birds than I am) and checked to make sure that nothing was broken.  He seemed to be just stunned so we walked over to a grassy area to give him time to recover.


He perked up and before we knew it, he had flown away.  


I've never been that close to a hummingbird before.  It was a pretty cool encounter.

How cute! What a precious little guy. Good thing you guys found him stunned before a cat did.

Yeah, that's a once in a lifetime experience. A hummingbird in the hand is worth two in the...
