Well I have never seen one of these before in Idaho.

So of course one shows up right after I take my camera off my tripod to leave the area. I look up and there is this waxwing. So these are handheld and not the best focus. Still I wanted to share them cause I was so excited to get these photos of a waxwing at last. I got 4 pictures and then it was gone as suddenly as it appeared.

Congratulations on getting your first waxwing and handheld at that. Again, the beautiful color saturation of this lens shows itself off but you also have a light effect in these that is special. I'm not sure if you used a flash because the circle of light surrounding the bird is so subtle, but, in any event, it sure looks good and really emphasizes the subject well.

Pretty, aren't they.

These ones appear to be Cedars rather than Bohemians because of the yellow belly, but I only attempt a guess here because I've seen both and have a bit of experience with these birds.

Cheers

Thanks for the comments.

The sun had just come up like 5 minutes before. Love that dawn light!
