A Big Bug? No a Hummingbird!

Photo Description
I was sitting outside with my back against my patio door and hand feeding my favorite squirrel. This usually keeps her out of my bird-feeder when I heard this thump and felt something hit the side of my leg. Looking down I thought, WOW, what a huge bug. I reached down to pick it up and throw it into the grass when I realized it was a hummingbird. I could see it breathing, but it didn't move. I was hoping it wasn't injured, but just knocked out. My phone was with me and I was able to take pics. I held it, between my fingers, until it was able to grip my finger. It still had a hard time opening and keeping it's eyes open. It seemed like forever standing and holding this tiny bird waiting for it to come around. It finally was able to keep it's eyes open and stared at me and I stared back. At this point I didn't know what to do. We were looking at each other for what seemed like eternity. I didn't want to scare it, but I could walk around with it and it still stayed on my finger. I finally took a deep breath and blew it slowly out which seemed to make it weave to one side and back. It then flew away with a buzz sound. I watch the hummers at my feeders, but they are so fast and whiz past my head. I felt lucky to be able see and actually hold a hummingbird so close. The time was very surreal.

This is the first time I've seen a hummingbird on a hand! You're so lucky. I'm happy it was able to fly away :)
