I shot these waxwings just before sunset on an overcast evening; it was very dark so I was forced to use the flash, which I don't normally use. I attempted to suppress the grain without totally destroying the photograph. The first two shots were taken slightly earlier:

These are great shots by any standard; for high ISO... outsanding!

Hi Norm

I took my first picture of Waxwings yesterday. Never shot one before. I hear your pain...:lol:

The ones I took were in excellent light and yet they were difficult to shoot. A glance at these birds and you would think otherwise.

makes you think of that song; "theeeese eyeeeessss"

Really nice shots!

Truly wonderful Norm. The framing on these very pretty birds couldn't have been any better. The first one and the last one are my favorites and I do believe I like the last one best. The catch light in his eye, the dark background with the limbs lit up with the flash and the two little red spots on the wings are glowing. Just great.
