My Wife Performs Miracles

Well sort of…

glass door

We were sitting in our living room, watching some TV when we heard a loud thump from the glass door to the deck in the dining room. She scampered across the room to see what it was. She found a stunned hummingbird, barely moving, lying on the deck. She quickly jumped into action.

She ran to the kitchen to get her yellow cleaning gloves and headed out the door. At this point, I still have no clue of what has transpired. She yells for me to get my camera. Of course, I listen. I walk out onto the deck and to my amazement, this is what I see:

The little guy looked to be a bit dazed with a wounded foot and a soar beak. Other than that, Mr. Hum-B was fairly calm and collected. Lucy had me make some sugar water that he wasn’t all that interested in. I ran inside to switch my lens and when I returned, he darted from her hands and fluttered graciously away to the nearest tree. He sat there for a moment and then continued his journey.

I hope he remembers us and continues to visit. Just watch those doors buddy!
