Lesser Yellowlegs. I downloaded & brightened them & increased the saturation, & you can actually see the leg color. But more importantly (in case that's an artifact -- it's certainly pushing the envelope), the size is right relative to the Greater Yellowlegs behind. It looks much smaller than it is because it's wading in deeper water, but if you look at the body length (tail to breast), you can see that the height is deceptive.

If it's anything other than a LYL, it's a phalarope (with neck couched). But I say LYL.
