p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Wilson Snipe and Sora


A snipe and sora are two birds that are rare to see around these parts plus difficult to spot along the weeds, so when I spotted these two the other day I was quite surprised. They were both tucked back in the weeds and would only dash out in the mud flats along the pond for a very brief moment then back in the weeds. Neither are what I'd call good shots but I took them more for documenting to myself that in fact I did spot them.

These are way better than most of my "ID" shots, especially since you needed lots of reach to get them. It interesting as I do more bird photography, that on many walkabouts, you face a choice to wait a significant time for a better composed or lit shot of a bird you have seen and identified, versus keep walking to check out more or different birds. All very much about weighing the probabilities...

Not bad at all Louie - especially the snipe. If they were just turned a little bit more toward the camera...

Maybe you could explain it better to them next time.

Thanks Fred, I've tried to no avail.

The first is my preference for the angle of the subject Louie. I also take images to document what I've seen
