Shaking his head after I give him food on the tweezer

A few times when I give my bearded dragon greens or crickets on a tweezer, after he eats it, he shakes his head. He has been doing it with the first food I feed him if I feed him a few things in a row. Normally, he shakes his head when I do something annoying. Or something is on him like water. There is purée on the greens, but nothing on the crickets. He has purée on his face. I’m wondering if he is trying to get that off. Does anyone know what this could mean?

Could you attach a video when he does it again? Also, in which direction is he shaking his head (up and down or side to side)?

It is not fast. He does a few jerks off his head. Like he’s trying to shake something off. When he does it when I spray him his eyes close. I don’t think I’ve ever seen him do it randomly

It looks exactly like he does when I spray him sometimes. He has been doing tit when I spray him for a very long time. He closes his eyes and looks like he is annoyed. It looks like he is trying to shake something off as well. He doesn’t do it all the time. I’ve only seen it a couple to a few times. Not for many days either.

I got a video. He normally might do it a couple more times before he stops. It is quite new. He haven’t been feeling good, but I went to the vet and I don’t think this would be related. I know when he dosent feel good he tends to get annoyed with me much easier.

It was a cricket. But he might have done it with a green with purée. Although now I’m not too sure. I do know he gets very annoyed with the purée on his face. He gets it all over his face when I hand him a green like that. He dosent do it every time I give him a cricket. Only the first cricket after awhile without me handing him food.

Will he eat greens on his own?

i feel so sad reading your about me 😢
Clapton is acclimating okay I think. He's quick as lightning so I'm not sure how much I should bring him out of his house yet. He's not at all interested in his salad though. I wonder if I should change what I'm giving him. Least he's eating his crickets.

Things to do:
Buy calcium powder
Material to raise surface for basking spot
Scenery decals for back of tank
Taking my beardie for a walk
Hi everyone, I have a question please. I have a thick branch I got from outside. It has been in freezing temperatures so I know that it is insect free. I took it off the ground and sat it up during a night we got down to 15 so the entire thing would freeze. Well tonight I put white vinegar all over it too cleanse it since it won't fit in my oven. Do I need to rinse with water tomorrow or is it fine left alone dried?
