"a.field.of.snipe"

Additional exploration of images in last post. Added fragments of a dusk deep blue sky and overlays.

Have less time to experiment these days - these are quick studies using small file sizes.

Snipe are marvellous relatively uncommon marsh preferring shorebirds. Every time that I have seen this gregarious species it has been in beautiful quiet fresh water wetlands, far from even sparsely populated suburbia.

I like the contrasting colors on this one!

It looks like an old map of a continent of which only the shoreline has been explored extensively. A very pretty old document.

The Monterey Aquarium had me thinking that the snipe was a pretty common bird. It is one I recognized anyway. I have always liked that name and now I have to look up what it is called in Dutch.

I think I see a few hunters in there.

Stunning "study," John. I say this frequently, but it is one of my favorites. Perhaps I should learn to say that it's one of my favorites of your most recent work.

These lines are lovely:) They look like little micro-organisims, alive and organic.
