Great shots. I have to say that those young C. waxwings are not nearly as pretty as the adults. But, your pictures of them are really top notch.
Well done,
Steve
P.S. What lens were you using?

Thanks Rocky and Steve.

Steve, I bought the 300L IS f/4. Really nice lens. I also just received a 1.4 II extender. Haven't tried it out yet.....cheers...Don

5, 6 & 7 a bit out of focus, probably because of the the branch in the front. 1-4 are terrific. Perhaps, for the former, over-riding by manual fine tuning may help resolve the problem. Amazing that you can get that real close to the waxwings.

Thanks Leung. The last 3 are 100% crops, so that might make for the look of being a bit oof. It's hard to get close to these little guys in the bush. Tough shooting...cheers...Don

Nice job, Don. I never see the juveniles, but the adults are so pretty. Nice combination of equipment. I would love to have a 400mm in F.4 Maybe Canon will make one someday.

Actually they do, Don. It is the DO and at about the price of the 500mm. I was just dreaming about a 400 f.4at not much moreweight than the 5.6 and a whole bunch less cost. Oh, well
