Woodcock Crossing Road

I've been trying to get a shot of this goofy looking bird for several years now, not so much as for profit, but more just to prove that I had seen one. They're pretty rare in our area of the world, and even harder to photograph. They're small, flush quick, are perfectly camouflaged and faster than lightning. Needless to say, I'm pleased.
