Wilson's Snipe

My all time record close encounter with a snipe. This on was only a few yards from the second bridge at Steigerwald Lake NWR that traverses Red-tail Lake. It and its partner seemed to become totally habituated to people over the two weeks we saw it in the same place. They are the ultimate blenders with their environment.
