This pair pair of cedar waxwings were interacting in our burning bush while eating berries in Corning NY.  A flock of 40-50 migrated thorough this week staying for two days. It’s always special to be able to capture images of other species interacting.  It makes them more relatable. 7D2 with 100-400 II

Wonderful shot, with the subjects in an interesting attitude, very beautiful the frame of berries.

A lovely scene of this pair in the burning bush. Great background, and the berry in the beak ices it. Very nice, Ed.

No wonder they stayed for a couple of days, Ed - what a feast they had! Lovely interaction.

Love this kind of scene with interactive behavior. I wonder if this berry is an offering to the other waxwing- it seems fairly common. Nice light!
