Well, that's quite imaginative. You would have always regretted it if you hadn't tried it out.

There's also the saying that "practice makes perfect." Perhaps if you try it again a couple of times you'll get better results. Or not...
You can be takinga short nap when nothing is going on will continue but I think trying to use the BushHawk while laying down is a done deal. Thanks for the fun comment and for looking.

good idea but.......... if you lay down here and happen to fall asleep, all anyone will find of you is a stripped skeleton.

fire ants are pretty tough here.

Find a comfortable spot in the flight path of a pair of Osprey, lay down on my back and in between power naps look up and get a few photos of the Osprey flying by. Clean off the new nap area spread a few inches of pine needles, fold up my vest for a pillow and I am ready to out smart the Osprey from a lazy position. YUP!!! this idea might win the idea of the year award.
Well taht depends of flight patterns..... bird here tend to be very low flying/hunting so you would have half a sec to see and shot them as the flew over....

Hard enought to see them coming and catch them.

And and thinking of Pelicans, but BTW Ospeys too.... which have usually just caught a fish and are trying to gain altitide (with often a fish much of their weight) to find a place to dine.... lucky if they fly buy as much as 2-4 times eye level... let alone straight up.

All in where you are, and conditions.
