Mr. Hum

Thurs. evening when I went outside I found this little fellow
on the ground flapping away... and very exhausted. So I picked him up and brought him in . Imagine holding a humming bird in your hand... I just wanted to kiss him......but I didn't :) I named him , Mr. Hum

Ed fixed up a great little tube so I could feed him some sugar water... he really liked it... and ate a lot.... then rested... I kept him in a little nest I made.... by my I could feed him at night , if needed.... he slept very quietly :) Today I tried to see if he could fly, but sadly he just flops around really trying hard... he flys straight up like a helicopter...then falls... I can't figure out what is wrong... so I just continue to feed him... and keep him safe... got any ideas?
After all my chores today I sat down and tried another watercolor.... I seemed to be thinking about the ocean.... well I guess because I spent the first 21 years of my life on it....
I like this sketch.. I think I will make a big one... I can hear the waves crashing in the background... and gulls cackling away...

if you live by the sea... say hello for me.... and

I LOVE Mr. Hum. Maybe he needs you to show him how to fly? Will pray that he can do it soon. How precious that you can play mom to a hummingbird!

Ah, Mr. Hum is so sweet. Poor thing. Well, we'll add this to the list of animals you saved -- didn't you help a fox once in Vermont?

I'm thinking of the ocean too... there is something about summer and the sea.
