We heard a thump this morning, so I went outside to see what happened. Found this little dude laying in the yard with one of the dogs sniffing at it. I thought he was done for as he was bent almost in half backwards, but SWMBO picked him up. He seemed dazed for quite a while. We wound up putting him in a tree and he fluttered around for an hour or so, then flew into one of the trees in the back yard. Seems he is gone now.

Not the greatest bird photo by a long shot. I don't even know what mode I was in(probably fully auto since my daughter was playing with the camera).

D40, 18-55 kit lens.

Photos look pretty good to me, considering your unexpected encounter!

I particularly like the 2nd image.
