Anyone got any ideas as to why he's perched that way? I'll give you a hint, it is not what you think! Better viewed large.
Ok. So you wanna know, eh? Mon@rch, birdyboo, ms.lume and Photo Patty got it right. He did just take a bathroom break. Fifteen seconds later, he took off. Great job everyone, and thanks for all the comments!
