Snipe on Moss, Calling Out

Snipe on Moss, Calling Out

While driving the Ridgefield NWR auto tour route, April 4, 2017, I spotted this Wilson’s Snipe fly across the road in front of me and land on a mossy log near water’s edge.  The bird then began loudly calling out.  This set of circumstances doesn’t happen often for me, but when it does, I take the bird’s picture! 🙂  The background is brightly lit water.

Canonn 5D Mark III, 1/1250, f4, ISO 1000, 500mm, 10:17 a.m.
