Wounded

Found this little guy while waiting for a train. He I in the photo but wasn't when I arrived. Aside from photographing him in his time of distress, my guilt compelled me to console him. We sat together for about thirty minutes as the little guy slowly started to seem better. I'm no expert on the subject, but it appeared as if he was recovering from a concussion or head injury of sorts. (There was a window nearby so that would have made sense) however eventually he and I parted ways when he finally flew away out of my hand.
