No Readers’ Wildlife photos today as I have to conserve what I have (send yours in), and Stephen Barnard also sent me a “spot the. . ” photograph. His notes:
I was taking some calibration shots with my digiscoping setup, trying to get the exposure right, when this bird popped into view. The rig was fixed on a tripod and I had no idea the bird was there until I saw the photo. Pretty sure it’s a Wilson’s Snipe (Gallinago delicata). Not a great photo, but I thought the serendipity was cool.
Can you spot it? I classify this one as “pretty easy”.
