Corral Fence

A Wilson's Snipe on cedar rail fencing

There was a fence between me and the corral so I was not able to get in any closer to the Wilson's Snipe or to the lichen on the fence. Sometimes I wish I were invisible so I could sneak in.

I am linking to Good Fences HERE

That fence has the look of age.

You are such a good rule follower. I am also. I've had enough talks with landowners, security guards and others.

That fence looks like part of the earth now.

It's a good photo. Closer would be a different photo and likely no better -- just different.

Maggie said...

Mother Nature does camouflage so well, the bird and the fence are exactly the same shades. Fab shot.

Mascha said...

What a lovely shot! In matching colors...

That nice old weathered fence has lots of character.

Mary Hone said...

That is a great fence, and a great shot.

Karen S. said...

Wow, lovely picture. It always impresses me how bird's feathers just blend so beautifully into their surroundings. Nature is amazing.

Cranberry Morning said...

A fence AND a bird?? You are definitely an overachiever. LOL Beautiful shot!

TexWisGirl said...

Ileana said...

Lovely old fence!

Linda W. said...

The bird on top really makes this photo! Nice shot!

Penelope Postcards said...

Wow … what a beak! That bird could poke some good holes into that fence. :)

Kathy said...

Texas has fences kin to this one but that snipe is not a bird I believe we have anywhere in this area. What a long bill!

Lowell said...

Perhaps if you gave that old fence a slight push it would disintegrate? So that's a snipe? As I recall, when I was young and even more naive than I am now, I was invited on a couple of "snipe" hunts which left me cold and alone in the Minnesota woods! :)

Thanks for your kind comment!

Debbie said...

ooooo that is a work of art!!! and the perfect landing spot!!!

RedPat said...

Love the fence! I've never seen one of these guys, EG!

William Kendall said...

A wonderful looking fence, EG!

Chris Rohrer said...

A snipe on a fence. That's is not only a good bird but a great combo! Usually they are hiding in the grasses:) Excelente!

Sylvia K said...

Love that old fence and the bird "matches" it perfectly!! Great way to hide out -- be the same color as your surroundings!! Terrific capture as always!! Love the detail!!

Terri @ Coloring Outside the Lines said...

Pretty shot and a neat bird I don't get to see here.

Buttons Thoughts said...

Incredible shot of a very cool fence and the Snipe amazing. Hug B

Jenny said...

An unlikely spot for the snipe, but he's well camouflaged. They are comical looking birds with their long bills and fat bodies.

Ok, I didn't see the bird at first, but this photo is really amazing!

abrianna said...

That is a very interesting fence and bird. Nice tones.

Ida said...

Wow that Snipe sure is camouflaged on that fence. The textural look of this shot is fantastic. I really liked it.

Love your capture of this fence - yeah all the sacrifices we make for a good shot, eh?

Ruth Hiebert said...

That fence has so much character. I love it.

"E", ...Beth... , from VA. said...

love that fence ... but the bird is what is super awesome!!!! ( :

cieldequimper said...

Yes and naturally, you just happened upon the scene and you're even complaining that you weren't close enough... pffffft... :-)

Rose said...

This must be about as old as the barn in the previous post...does it even go with that barn or is it me making the jump? I think it is a fine shot.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

A successful Snipe Hunt! I am deeply impressed. I wouldn't apologize for a second for not getting closer if I had taken that.

Gill - That British Woman said...

that bird is nearly invisible. Great shot.

Stephanie said...

Looks like it has a lot of history behind the aged wood.

Randy said...

Wonderful shot. I didn't even notice the bird at first sight.

Michelle said...

He kind of blends in with the fence!

Jack said...

Lovely, EG. A fine composition.

Mama Zen said...

I think that you got a great perspective.

Kay said...

I agree with Maggie: the bird looks almost camouflaged. And you may not have gotten in close but you did a great job with this shot.

Pietro and Cynthia said...

Great picture!

Halcyon said...

What a cute little guy!

llandudnopictures said...

Kovács Miklós said...
