I think it deserves its own category. What a lovely image.

Common Snipe...... I had 11 of these 5-6 metres from me today. I was beginning to wish I had a zoom lens instead of a prime, at one stage I couldn't focus on any of them, the limitations of my prime lens with regards to MFD with 1.4x TC was tested. It was difficult to move back as I was in a small hide with small window openings. Eventually the Snipes flew off to a clearing about 50 metres further out then that is when the prime came into it's use.

Great light and detail. It is hard to get good detail on waxwings.
