Sneakie Snipe

On my way back from a conservation meeting in Gunnison, I stopped in Chaffee County to check some agricultural fields. I found this Wilson's Snipe hiding from me behind the grass leaves.

The other pic shows the view of the hayfields where I found the snipe. In the distance is Monarch Pass which I traveled over going and returning from Gunnison today. This morning it was snowpacked and a little icy in spots as we had a major storm come through yesterday that brought 6-12 inches of new snow on top of the pass and lots of rain at lower elevations. It had warmed this afternoon and was quite beautiful weatherwise, matching the beauty of this scene.
