nice to see

Was this one flying about, or still sleepy?

Very much sleepy, I found it

Very much sleepy, I found it clambering over a garden ornament which was by the front door. Even when handled made no attempt to fly away, ended up putting it somewhere a bit safer, away from my three year old son!!!
