Don't know if you can see it clearly (or at all) in an image this small, but I thought this was kind of funny. This sparrow was out singing in the sun and then noticed these mosquitoes flying above it's head.

I like the first image of the Song Sparrow. The mosquitos show clearly in the second image...that pose is a typical singing pose for a Song Sparrow.

Very nice shots. West Nile Virus is decimating birds in the US and these pests are how it gets them.
