Just time for ONE Cedar Waxwing...

  1. I spent the evening at our local estuary looking for something to shoot, but got nothing, until I was about to turn back home. Suddenly two Cedar Waxwings appeared at pretty much focus limit of the 300 with a TC20EII on. Unfortunately a branch was in the way, but I got away ONE shot before they flew away....

    original.

    Beautiful shot Andreas. These little guys typically can be seen in fairly dense foliage, so it's very difficult to get a clean shot. Everyone that I've gotten has either a branch or shadow in the frame.
     
  3. Very nice shot Andreas. I would have to agree with what Frank has said, of the few shots I have of this bird, they all include some unwanted branches.

    Look at the little guy! How cute! His feathers are perfect. I love cedar waxwings! Love the colors, love the white under-carriage, love the yellow tip on the tail, love the black beak and black mask, love the tuft of feathers on top of their heads. He's like a little shrike on LSD.

    Thanks for posting him. Don't see many of them down here.

  9. Well I have better shot sof them but this was so close it was incredible, and thats why it didbnt take more then one flash and it was gone...

    Thanks Louis!!! As sid I have better but not as close...
    They like berries on bushes so this one was sitting in a wild cherry tree, they move around so one has to be quick while they are at the spot...
    Well you know where I live, I think the 300 with a TC17 is a good choice...
    Yes they are one of the coolest birds I know as well. just lov'em...
    Thank you Gale!!!
    Thank you Harry!!!
