Cedar Waxwings occasionally transit through our yard.  This one landed on an old bush near my deck.  I particularly like this image not only due to the wonderful light, but also the fact that you can clearly see the red spots on the wings and the yellow tail tip.

Nice side lighting and I really like the colors and BG.

Nice job in the color and detail. Yes the red spots just glow. I might consider a little desaturation to the green background

Lucky you to get a visit from this beauty, Ed! Lovely shot and perfect angle to get a good view of the 'hot wax' spots!

A superb view... You really need this view to show off these guys.
Nice BG and perch.
