After the Sky Dance

While bending down to pluck deer ticks off of my pants, I was lucky enough to spot this female woodcock on her nest at Lulu Lake SNA. I was mildly startled when she came into focus out of the leaf litter–I had almost stepped right on her. I very slowly reached for my camera and took this photo.
