Browsing through 2012 pics .... a couple of favorites:

Not your typical extra-super-immensely-detailed bird pic ... different.




And a close up of the Wilson Snipe ... you can check the others of that same bird on my Flickr page:

Nice shots, really liked the Snipe especially. Nice view partially hidden by the long grass. Thanks for posting.

Glad you like the snipe. T'was my closest approach for this bird which are usually very shy.

Nice to see birds in the natural habitat like the snipe. Nice one.

Comment much appreciated: although not always possible, I like the habitat to be part of the picture. Granted, "real close up" shots are great but the added environment is also what makes the picture "real" ... welll, that's my opinion

Cheers.
