The Cedar Waxwing

This bird with his sleek and smooth looking plumage lives in flocks around Vancouver all year 'round, but in 40 years of living here this is the first one I ever spotted in the woods around Burnaby Lake

    Excellent capture of this Cedar Waxwing !
    Beautiful natural colours, great sharpness and the twig makes a great diagonal line in the compo !
    Good work !!!

    oh, how lucky you were, adele! it must have been such a great feeling to finally see and capture him!! and what a beautiful and "grave" looking fellow he is! love his pastel colored plumage – it puts me in an eatster-egg mood – and his period hairflip ; ))! hugs, sabine.
