A few shots of a very cooperative Wilson's snipe at my favorite "bird park"... this little guy was not shy at all! Came out, casually strolled by not 15 feet away, foraged for a while, posed a few times, and gave me about 45 minutes of uninterrupted close-ups. I actually left before the snipe did, since I wanted to see what else I could find at the park that day!

Now that’s unusual Rocky, 45 minutes at that, a real beautiful Snipe, well taken.

Probably decided you were a novice "snipe hunter" and thought you needed a little help.;-)a Beautiful shots, Rocky.

Very nice. They certainly don't pose like that often.

Thanks, Rog! I've been "hunting" these little guys for years, and have numerous shots of them, but none this close and clear...

Thanks, Ken! You're right, they sure don't!
