Super work on these Sharon, I hope that one day I can get one in my viewfinder. The look back shot is my pick too, nice detail.

Good for you for being ready, Sharon, you nailed these. Waxwings are the same here, they light for a few minutes and then poof, they're gone ;)

They are one of my favorites. I expecially love to listen to them... almost siren like. Great shots of one regal looking bird!

Thank you Barry, they are such a treat to see around here.

Aha.... it seems there was discussion in one of my waxwing threads, that one of my good friends from "lower Alabama" was yearning for a waxwing "find & capture"... ;) Wow Sharon... you sure nailed these beauties. The natural details of their silky feathers are perfect... lovely shots... you made the best of their short visit.

Dave

Thank you Dave for sending them my way....now we need to work on sending that gorgeous black backed woodpecker down here for a photo shoot. :lol:

Excellent shots, Sharon; I love their formal attire.
Al

Thanks Al, they are elegant looking birds for sure.

Wow. How fortunate that you were able to see these and get these great images Sharon. They are beautiful.

Thank you Don, I just happened to notice them from the kitchen window.

Great detail in these Sharon with a nice bg and setting. A beautiful pair of shots.

Thank you Mike, I appreciate it. These are the best shots I've gotten of this species so far.

Well done, indeed, Sharon. Great captures of this very pretty bird. You have preserved all the detail. Way to go.

Thank you much Harvey, it's very appreciated.

Oh my Sharon!!!!! Beautiful shots, but take a bow over the second. Wonderful in every way.

Thank you so much Lil for the kind words, they are greatly appreciated.

Pretty shots, Sharon. I never see them here, maybe because we have no berry trees/bushes...just palm trees and live oaks.

Thank you Stan, they're such a surprise when I notice them around here...they never stay very long though.

Excellent Sharon!
I'm glad they paid you a visit. I told mine to go down and say Hi to you and pose for you and I can see they did a marvelous job! You got extremely nice captures and real momentos of their visit. Well done!

Thanks Steve for sending them over here, I'll take all of them I can get.

Grizz wrote in post #14123419 (external link)

Thank you Ian, I think these were the initial search party....looking for berries, and since I didn't have any, they didn't stick around for very long.

We have then here a good part of every summer and fall. They are far ranging migrants that follow the ripening nut and berry bushes and trees. We have stuff coming ripe for a good part of the summer and fall, so we have them making appearances all the time, and welcome. :)

They're one species I would love to have down here all year long.
