Hello friends, the American Woodcock the tail
in the fantail. Context : A manifestation of anxiety.
This photo is from my spring 2013 archives.

1/800s f/8.0 ISO1000 50mm (35mm eq:75mm).

from the Ruffed Grouse Society website

« Earthworms provide about 60 percent of the bird's diet.
The worms are high in fat and protein, they provide the
necessary nutrients to help keep woodcock healthy and strong.
An additional 30 percent of a woodcock diet consists of insects
such as ants, flies, beetles, crickets, caterpillars, grasshoppers
and various larvae. They've also been known to eat crustaceans,
millipedes, centipedes and spiders. »

Hello Asbed,
Nice photo of this American Woodcock in beautiful camouflaged colours. Fine sharpness and DOF.

Hello Asbed.
Almost invisible.Nice camouflage!Well captured.Like its colour.
Thanks for sharing,
Regards and have a nice day tomorrow,

Bonsoir Asbed,
Très bonne exploitation de la lumière et de la profondeur de champ permettant d'apprécier le mimétisme du sujet avec son environnement.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hi Asbed, Nice capture of this bird in a busy natural environment. It took me a while to find the bird because its colours similar to the colours of the dried leaves on the ground. The wild plants around framed the bird nicely. Very special composition with nice clarity too. Best regards

Ciao Asbed, lovely composition with nice woodpecker in a beautiful ambientation, wonderful natural colors and splendid light, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio

Bonjour Asbed,
Toujours intéressant de voir ces images de camouflage, même si celzui-ci a eu peur en voyant le photographe ou son chien :-)
