Default Just a couple of shots :)

We went to the dog park yesterday and while walking to dog I was looking to take some shots at birds .... but found only one so far (obviously it is not spring yet since we received another inch of snow today...). I used the E-30 with the 50-200 SWD.

Anyway, this is the Bohemian Waxwing:



and our dog running



Enjoy !

Couple of good ones too.
I really like the Cedar Wax Wing they're pretty shy around here and stay high in the trees.
The puppy is a cutie, looks like he's spotted you though.

Looks like my old dog in the background, I miss Eric (the half a bee) my old Malamute...sob!

I've never seen a wax wing - nice shot. And Oly's don't have a good reputation for AF on your second shot but it did fine there. Cute puppy too!
