This is a glimpse into our past week as seen through the eyes of my husband, Andrew Henry.
Andrew Henry says: As you might surmise from the condition of my hands, I was outside working on my old truck when Jeanette informed me there was a hummingbird in our kitchen. I went in and gently scooped him up, brought him outside and set him free. I could feel his little heart beating very fast. Also, he peed on my hands. This is the second time I have held a wild hummingbird, they are extremely lightweight.
Jeanette says: I love that his hands are all dirty and beat up from fixing the truck, yet they hold that sweet bird so delicately. That about sums up Andrew Henry to me. I so have a crush on him.
PS - this is the THIRD bird that has flown into my house in the last two weeks. Sorry for the poor photo quality, we took it very quickly with our phone so we could let the poor thing go as fast as possible.
