Common Snipe

By Colin Smale    
First foray with my new (s/h) Nikon D100. Love the camera. These snipe come out into the open a couple of hours before sunset and bath in the glorious light of the magic hour, I am having a great time with them right now.

This is excellent, so clear ! I find it hard to get close enough to small birds like this, I will have to persevere.

Great shot - these little birds are so shy - usually only see a blur of wings disappearing!

Wow great shot! Fantastic colours, pin sharp all over. Love the slight ripple effect on the reflection.

Very envious of this shot. All I have is a few dull grey shots when they are out on the mud. Having them in the water with the blue sky reflected gives a fantastic image!

Colin a super image. When these birds decide to show, they are a treat to photograph, arent they?

Nice one!

Used to spend hours waiting for them to do their zig-zag flight pattern...that was many years ago in Derbyshire..A fine shot Colin considering the distance

what a fantastic bird with wonderful colours and with great attention to detail excellent SmileSmileSmileSmile
