Simply Snipe: Finding Stanley

11th July 2016
It's been a challenge that has lasted at least 3 years to find a Snipe on post to photograph.



And just like everything you wait for, including a number 10 bus..guess what,5 Snipe all turn up, one after another!


I had missed out so many times of actually photographing a Snipe on a post that together with dear friends Steve, Penny and Neil a mythical character called Stanley evolved. In fact during a very hysterical two weeks in Iceland a couple of years back, Steve cleverly created a whole back story along the lines of the then cult Scandinavian drama "The Killing" with Stanley, being the hero of the tale. I did say that it was an hysterical trip and therefore hope you can see your way round this explanation!

Anyway long, story short, just when I thought Stanley was going to allude me again, fortune smiled on me.Along one road, one that I had travelled for the previous 4 days, I finally got lucky and saw Stanley all up for being photographed.



In fact I'd call that more than lucky!
