    Super shot, I bet you have seen this little scenario several times and said to yourself, "one day I'll get that shot!" Well you did and boy it looks great. It's a bucket list shot if ever I saw one, one shot I always want to get is a Snipe on a stone wall or on a lovely weathered post like this.
    Just looking at the legs there appears to be a hint of magenta there, I have not seen this bird - just asking, should it be there?

    Wow! I really like how great you have captured this classic pose of the Meadowlark. Leg color does seem to be off.

    Jeez, almost every image I have looked at this afternoon has been gorgeous, including and especially this one.

    From the car? Did you used audio?

    What month?

    I forgot to mention. The perch is great. You might want to move the bird back in the frame just a bit ... And I am pretty sure that the bird has pink legs ...

    What a great capture. Wish he was turned a tad more towards us. I'd be verticalizing the perch if it were mine (right or wrong) abut what a pose her struck for you! TFS.

    Hi Artie, yes, from the car, no audio. I captured this image in November 2020, found and and did a do over recently on the processing.

    Great calling pose. Those feet look pretty big. Killer background.
