Tuesday, September 10, 2013 Moose and Snipe mini Photo Bomb

Seward Alaska

Today, I got my first, and very small, photo bomb while photographing a grazing cow moose. As she moved slowly along, she kicked up two SNIPE that shot past her just as I clicked the shutter. Voila!

Look closely to the left of the moose's nose for the second snipe.

Also spotted between hard rain showers, 11 NORTHERN SHOVELERS, the first seen this fall, a PEREGRINE FALCON, and a MERLIN. Sadly, a GLAUCOUS-WINGED GULL flew over, a bright fishing lure hooked in its bill. 

At least one TRUMPETER SWAN is still at the Mile 1 Nash Road wetlands, tucked away on the east side of the road. One swan was reported at Tern Lake.

Happy Birding!
