    cedar waxwings are one of my favorite birds to shoot. We usually get a wave of them early summer. You really got his colors well, only thing I miss is yellow bar on his tail, but then its not like you can control their pose.

    I was lucky enough to see about 6 of waxwings at a nearby lake back in May. It was the first and only time I have ever seen these birds -and of course I didn't have a long enough lens to capture them. :(

    Beautiful shot!
