yes, Virginia, there really is something called a snipe... this is a Wilson's snipe, sometimes called a Common snipe. normally they hide in clumps of dead reeds and grasses, and are very difficult to see. but sometimes they come out to forage and if you're lucky, you can get a good look at them...

not really hiding, just blending in with the reeds... 40D, 400mm, 1/1000 @ f/10



out for a walkabout... 40D, 400mm, 1/400 @ f/10

[align=center]So THAT is what a snipe looks like. As a child I spent many nights in the woods with my back to a tree and a paper bag above my head hunting this elusive critter. :lol:
