I believe that there were 2 couples on the left and a single male on the right who wanted to join, but he was forced to leave :-)

Great shot!

There will be days when you get the shot(s) you missed days, months or years before.

Hi Vassilis...

That is one incredible photograph! Great timing, beautiful background, and fantastic camera work.

Courting Cedar Waxwings.

A flock of 20 or so Cedar Waxwings were feeding on apple blossom petals when these two decided to pair up. The blackflies almost drove me inside but I persevered. Only a few were displaying the red wax adornments that give the bird its name including this pair.

Thank you Ted, thank you Tom ! The tricky part was to follow this thin branch as it moved suddenly up or down, depending on the number of birds perched on it
