Saving the hummingbird

While browsing through the local Lowes Garden Center today, I noticed the sales clerk was watching this little hummingbird on the floor. The bird could only fly about 5'. I don't know if she was hurt or had just fledged and hadn't mastered flying. We kept putting her in a safe place but she kept flying into harms way. Eventually we got her to stay in a safe place, but not before asking another customer to take her picture in my hands. What an experience seeing a hummingbird up close for the second time this summer.

Seeing that photo of the hummer cradled in two hands is incredible!
