I have some remaining doubt about this one. I believe all three images show the same individual.

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?

Donโ€™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

ok perhaps you dont mind if I re-upload a lightened version of the image in the OPas it is too dark to make out plumage?

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 donโ€™t looked drapped in algae to me.
