Lost hummingbird

As with every photo, there is a story behind this one. This cute and tiny hummingbird flew inside the house and tried to get out by flying through an open window that was covered over with mosquito netting. The little bird became stuck after its beak was caught in the netting. My wife gently grasped the bird and pulled it away from the netting. The hummingbird was so calm, it then stood on my daughters finger for the next five minutes. When she walked outside with the hummingbird, it happily flew away, never to be seen by us again. I wish it would come back and visit!
