I can see you got a 50d. And used a short zoom for a bird shot.
You managed well with the 24-105, the waxwings must have been close.
Nice pose abd well composed but it's about 1 step to dak on my monitor but it's still a very nice picture.

I am sure that TN introduced me to this species..they almost look unreal, perhaps hence the name...very nicely posed...as if you had a say, but then again a nice time to click eh?

This is a very nice view of the two Waxwings posing very nicely on a branch. They're sharply in focus and I like the composition. A trifle too dark though, but I expect the light was poor.
TFS and cheers, Ulla

You captured this pair in wonderful poses having a staring contest. I've never seen a Waxwing except in pictures but they are easy to recognize. I love the crests which are so visible in the side views. It is a bit dark but still a great catch.

excellent photo of the Waxwing with a fine POV
that in French we say « en contre-plongé »,
excellent sharpness and details, TFS
A great capture of a couple of Waxwings taken from a fine POV with good sharpness and set in a fine composition on what looks like a crab-apple tree. Just a bit dark perhaps but not easy to adjust without spoiling the image, but I gave it a try in the WS.
I was hoping to take a good shot of these in the late autumn but the few flocks that I saw didn't settle.

bella immagine di beccofrusoni catturati con buona definizione in una bella posa, hai gestito bene il forte contrasto di luce, l'immagine offre un buon impatgto visivo con BG del cielo.

Yet another unusual bird for your huge collection.
Great work, Pekka!
