Thanks both. I will have to check the originals but I had the impression of blackish legs. Additionally, at one time there was a least within 1/2 meter from this one and there was a visible size difference.
A/ Please upload the original images or at least a lightened version of these
b/ If not a Least, what did you have in mind since you give the impression by your OP, you have all but identified it as something else. What answer are you looking for?
Don’t forget legs on waders often look much darker to due mud/glare.
Thanks Deb, blowing the image up to 2-300% of what it was and playing with the lightning are things I need to do. There was a white-rumped sandpiper there, but I was wondering if there also was a semipalmated still here. I will have time for that in a few hours, I hope
Looking at several images, and using the sampler in the editing program, I am pretty confident we cannot say anything about the color of the legs. They are just as green as the non-living items around them, there seems to have been a lot of algae in that water.
Here is an image blown up - it is the same image Deb worked on except I started from the RAW image, for whatever difference that might make. If this is unidentifiable that is ok too.
Those legs definitely look yellow green on my monitor - compare them to the colour of the bill! Saying they are the same colour (which they are not exactly- more yellow) as the vegetation actually supports the legs being yellowish green. You can even see the hind toe - those legs don’t looked drapped in algae to me.
