We went for a walk at the Audubon Plainsboro Preserve near our home looking for dragonflies. As we were walking down the path that extends out into Lake McCormick we were surprised to see a pair of Cedar Waxwings. One flew off to a higher branch behind the leaves but the other posed for us giving me an opportunity to get a few fairly close images. I shot a few images than moved a little closer hoping to get some closer shots before it flew off. I was using an Olympus OM-D -Mk1 camera with a Panasonic 100-300mm lens @300mm (Full Frame Camera Equivalent ~ 600mm.)
Wonderfully sharp photos, Reed! I always find them challenging to take.
Thanks so much Belinda! They are fun to photograph!
Beautiful images, Reed, of the pair of super striking-looking birds. I have always liked the sleek look of Cedar Waxwings and you even captured a view of the wonderful yellow-tipped tail.
Thanks Mike! Just wish I got the 2 of them together, but they were very skiddish! And did not stay together long.
I completely understand that, Reed. Getting a shot of more than one of anything is always a challenge and even when you do, one always seem to be looking away or bending over. 🙂
One of my favorite birds… beautiful, crisp images, Reed!
Thanks so much Eliza!!
Beautiful images, Reed. These are such beautiful birds, unfortunately we don’t have them in Europe. Enjoyed watching this series.
Thanks so much Greta! They are fun to see & photograph!
Lovely shots, Reed! Well done!
Thanks Donna! One of my favorite birds!!
Nice shots, Reed. We get Cedar Waxwings here as well and some winters even the Bohemians.
Thanks Steve! So far I have not seen any Bohemians here!
