Spot the snipe!

Speaking of snipe (see previous post), can you see this one? Yes, this is a real snipe hunt, not a bogus one inflicted on young campers. The photos come from Stephen Barnard in Idaho, with his notes indented. Click photos to enlarge; reveal at 11 a.m. Chicago time. 1. Extremely difficult. Nearly impossible in my […]
