Baby hummer stuck to a leaf?

I was watching a fledgling hummer bump around the garden yesterday morning. He flew into some Poppy Mallow and got stuck to one of the leaves by his wing! He was hanging upside down so I went over and supported him with my index finger. He recovered and flew off. Has anyone heard of this ever happening? I cant figure out what would have caused it

Maybe it worked like Velcro...picky/fuzzy leaf and smooth baby feathers? I dunno what your mallow leaves are like but mine have fine hairs on them so it would be possible for something smooth to get stuck to them.
