how to get responsive hamburger menu to not push down content

I have this responsive hamburger nav that is currently pushing down the content below it. Is there a way to get it to just hover over the content instead? I have tried so many things, nothing that I am doing works but I'm not an expert. Any help is much appreciated! Thanks!

jsfiddle here

<nav class="header">
<input class="menu-btn" type="checkbox" id="menu-btn" />
<label class="menu-icon" for="menu-btn"><span class="navicon"></span></label>
<ul class="menu">
<li><a href="#work">Our Work</a></li>
<li><a href="#about">About</a></li>
<li><a href="#careers">Careers</a></li>
<li><a href="#contact">Contact</a></li>
</ul>
</nav>
<figure id="main-img"></figure>

figure#main-img {
width: 100%;
position: relative;
overflow: hidden;
border-top: 1px solid #000000;
border-bottom: 1px solid #000000;
z-index: 10;
height: 200px;
background-color: red;
}
nav.header {

Answer

Code (only the relevant css, the html did not change) from the JSFiddle in case it stops working:

body {
  width:100%;
  margin:0;
}

figure#main-img {
    width: 100%;
    position: relative;
    float:left;
    overflow: hidden;
    border-top: 1px solid #000000;
    border-bottom: 1px solid #000000;
    height: 300px;
    background-color: red;
    margin:58px 0 0 0;
}

nav.header {
  background-color: silver;
  opacity: 0.75;
  position: absolute;
  width: 100%;
  top:0;
  z-index:10;
  float: left;
  margin:0;
  overflow:hidden;
}
.header .menu-icon {
  padding: 28px 20px;
}

here is a JSFiddle you can work with.

nav.header {
  background-color: silver;
  position: absolute;
  width: 100%;
  top:0;
  z-index:10;
  float: left;
  margin:0;
  overflow:hidden;
}

Here you can see that I set the position to be absolute, set it to the top and then z-index is a larger number than the default.

Hope it helped, Andrew
