    Was on deck reading a book when a few lil birdies started perching themselves on me, so I fetched to camera and returned to reading in hopes they would do it again and I could get a shot of them on me. Well they did return then I saw this hawk looking at his lunch perched on me. Guess the lil fellows needed a body guard.

    haha the birdman is amung us!
    I like that look in his eye as he looks at you and his lunch
    you must be a still reader to get birds to land on you - looking that the predators perch I guess you were in a park or some such where the wildlife is a little tamer.

    Nice shot, i have tried getting pictures of hawks myself and they are very nervous birds, if you get too close they just fly away. I am impressed:)
