(Not my photo) That's a Sikorsky S-61N operated by Construction Helicopters, Inc. I know that they have one ship registered N906CH. They might have others. No idea where the photo is taken. However, looking at the foliage and airborne pollen, it could be somewhere in the Great Plains, either in the TOR fields or wind farms. That's only a guess.

Looks deceptive. The orange vest man on top of a forklift is using a static probe for eliminating the high voltage static charge the helicopter imparts on the load from blade generated static. That is normally only during hookup since on delivery ends the load is disconnected from remote inside the aircraft. The wiring from the right landing gear to the right cable I'd think is the hooks control for open and close. Too bad the load arrangement isn't visible dues to the field grasses height or a rise in elevation between photographer and load.

Saw this helicopter depart 39N (NJ) last Sunday mid-morning, so probably not operating in the midwest this week (as suggested below). I'd guess NJ or PA.

You think that's pollen?
Looks more like snow to me!
Ground crew member there appears to be in cold weather gear.
They sent that cold weather this direction. Thanks a lot!
Sorry nice pic of a working helicopter
