  9. This is my first time to see Snipe so up-close. I feel observing it myself through a telephoto lens, though I’m not sure I can focus my camera on the bird sharply like you. I’m back to blogging.

  19. HI Bob and what a wonderful set of images of the Snipe, they can be so difficult to find, the seem to blend into the background so well. Lets hope you find some more soon, all the best. John

    1. It was a long time since I saw Snipe, and I didn't have camera with me. Yesw John, it would be very very great to spot another.

  20. Con frecuencia los observo al borde del agua en la marea baja y se mimetizan con el terreno muy eficazmente.
