Snipes DO exist

Getting ready.
Caught one!
Here it is! Look close he's a wiggler.
Caught another one.
Fearless snipe catchers.

I know, I know, you are thinking I am just some crazy camp leader who got carried away but I caught one! On camera! Oh yes I did. And just to prove it I am going to share with you and the world my photo of a real live baby snipe. It was brown and moving a lot so it is a little blurry but it is there nonetheless. Emily caught it. She is so brave. But she had toothpaste on her face and undies on her head to keep it from biting. We were so lucky. We caught three but the mom started to get mad and was peeing on us from the bushes where she was hiding so we let the babies go and ran away. Some of the girls in our cabin couldn't sleep for fear that the mother would smell us and find our cabin. What fun girls camp is.

I also went to girls camp, just 2 weeks ago. We also hunted for snipes. It was so fun. Girls camp is great.
