Another angle of that Wilson's Snipe which I stumbled upon a few weeks back. Their camouflaging is insane! At one point, after being crouched and unmoving for a good 20 minutes of shooting, I had to get up and stretch out the cramps... 4 other Snipes took wing in alarm just a few meters from me, and I had no idea they were there.

While in hiding, I also got shots of these little Song Sparrows going about their daily routine:

Now that is dedicated.

So are you wading inside there and the floatation is just for the hide and kit?

What did you use for floatation?

Lester... this is how it works...., and I bought it ready to use...!
