Hazards of Garden Photography

Today while I was bending over to shoot this photo of some iris blooms in our garden I felt something land on the back of my neck. It felt sort of hard and bigger than the usual bug.

"A big beetle?" I thought brushing it off with my hand.

As I looked up a house finch flew away.

Why a bird would land on my back, I don't know. I've never been a landing strip for a bird before.
