  3. Może się chwalić swoim dziobem, bo jest taki długi. Ptak ma śliczne zdjęcie. Pozdrawiam.
    Can be proud of his bill, because it's so long. Bird has a beautiful picture. Yours.

  6. It is a wonderful close up of the Snipe. I wish I could get that close. By the way, I love the caption on last years Pheasant photo. Very true.

  7. This is amazing ... a beautiful, albeit, funny looking little Snipe. You seem to be very close or at least close enough to get great detail with your lens. Not an easy thing to do ...

I take pictures, mainly of birds. Some people think I prefer wildlife to people; I think they could be right. Myself and Whisky just try and enjoy what life I have left.
