  1. Basic Guidelines: In the strictest sense, nature photography should not include "hand of man elements". Please refrain from images with buildings or human made structures like roads, fences, walls. Pets are not permitted. Captive subjects in zoos, arboretums, or aquariums are permitted, but must be declared, and must focus on the subject, not the captivity. Images with obvious human made elements will likely be deleted from the thread, with an explanation to the photographer. Guidelines are based on PSA rules governing Nature photography which also cover the Nature Forum. Keep your image at/under 1000 pixels on the long axis for in-line viewing. Note that this includes photos hosted off-site at Flicker, Photobucket, your own site, etc

    Each member please post no more than just one image to this weekly thread per week. If the information is available, many members appreciate information on your approach to making the image and the names, both common and scientific, of the subject(s). However, while encouraged, these are not required as a component of your contributions.


    Still relying on going through the archives - here's another shot from January's outing in La Jolla

    Sorry I should have said that my bird is a Wilson's Snipe Gallinago delicata. Our European members will likely recognise it as very similar to their Common Snipe Gallinago gallinago. Thanks for the interest.

  15. Thanks for the reply. On a second look, I too think that it is a snipe. The woodcock has a reddish/orange breast.

    I have had woodcocks on my mind since last spring when I go to observe their mating behavior for the first time. Alas, I did not get any photos worth showing as it was too dark and the birds too far away. Hopefully next year!!!
