    There were all around the neighborhood and then suddenly they all took flight and disappeared into the sky.

    Thanks everyone.

    Mentos, you should have seen the very edges of that first shot, before I cropped...there was a lot of purple fringing. It was really starting to come out with my tweaks for detail & contrast.

    I guess my 75-300 4/5.6 III USM lens, is abberific :roll:

    So that is where all the local Bohemian Waxwings went eh?

    I also have to agree with the 2nd picture being great, as it seems as if they tree branches are going to break due to the numbers of them. Not to mention the last looking somewhat like bats.

    Cedar Waxwings, nice sight, common in Winter to see flocks of up to a thousand. Nice job.
