CLOSED: Which Yellowlegs?

(Zone 5a)

We saw both Greater and Lesser Yellowlegs on Saturday. My problem is not remembering which pictures were which and this one is giving me the fits because I learned to tell them apart based on their bill. Because it was a foggy morning, not many of the pictures were nice. This was one of my clearest pictures and the only one of this specific bird.

If anyone is able to ID this, could you tell me the markings that say which one it is?
Thank you very much.

Thank you for the ID and markings, Resin. I appreciate your help. :)
