Wilsons Snipe (Gallinago delicata)

Wilson's Snipe (Gallinago delicata)

Great Swamp NWR, NJ

A shorebird of wet, grassy spots, the Wilson's Snipe has an extremely long bill that it uses to probe in the mud for small invertebrates. Its camouflage is so good that it often is not seen before it flushes from the grass. The Wilson's Snipe also inhabits fresh water marshes and swamps.

Wildlife photography is one of my passions. I have been photographing wildlife for over 30 years and have accumulated a wealth of knowledge during this time. In college, I took a lot of science courses including botany, biology, ecology, zoology
and natural resource management. This training, along with my work with the national park service helps me a lot in my wildlife photography. The best advice I can give someone to improve their natural history photography is to be a good naturalist. The more you know about your subjects the better photographs you will make.
