I was out in a CRP field hoping to get shots of a harrier feeding.
I was sitting in the tall grass with a Ghillie suit on. I heard the sound of the wings and saw the shadow and then he landed. After a second or two he moved to this perch. I said on an earlier post that I wanted to get closer to the sparrow to get a better picture but had no idea he would land on my head!
It looks like if he wanted breakfeast there are ants right in front of him.

Nice captues Rob, very cute bird! Too bad there wasn't someone there to take the shot of the bird on your head!

I'm guessing you didn't see the ants when you took the image? I love little nuggets like that you find later on your computer screen. Cool image of one of my favorite birds. I just feel like they have so much personality sort of like a chickadee.

Your right the ants are one of those nuggets I found later.
