Hardy Snipe

Friends, this hardy Snipe is still hanging around on the icy edges of a pond that has not closed up yet, but the temperature this morning was only 9 degrees above zero Fahrenheit, so the water will soon close. Hope he gets his breakfast and hurries on his way south, it is not healthy to stay too long.  Below is another image of him enjoying the bitter cold sunshine, he was holding up his foot trying to warm it under his body.  Enjoy the sun while you can, til Tomorrow MJ
