Not for my benefit.  I don't open this discussion much.  Like many professionals, I'm prohibited from participating in activities reserved for amateurs.  :classic_tongue:

Last spring or so (maybe a couple of years ago, IDK) @Birding Boy posted a picture of an extremely cooperative (and FLOOFY) Least Sandpiper from an angle that made him look very round and fat and adorable. See here.

https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/342171981

He affectionately named the floof "Mister Waterballon" because of his perfectly round ball-ness, especially in that photo. We all thought the name was funny, which was also part of the intent. 

 

And then... two years later, Sean goes to Quivira. He finds some Least Sandpipers. And then he takes THIS photo....

 

 

And the rest is history.

A partial quote from Charlie Spencer's post above...*whispers*...you'll notice that I didn't tag him, so don't tell him I'm talking about him behind his back. :classic_wink:

At the risk of coming across as though I am trying to flog a deceased equine, @Aveschapines, what are the chances of getting a new 'Gag Me' reaction added for occasions like this? :classic_laugh:

Obviously he took my bait and then came back for more or else he wouldn't have seen the followup and posted this ...
