Amazing look-back pose and excellent composition. The detail is impeccable, Karl.

A very nice image, Karl; the green perch and green background, look so good against the Waxwing, in your photo. The small areas of yellow and red
on the subject , stand out so well, here.

Love the pose and the colors. The needles on the tree make for nice perch details.

Great looking shot for all the reasons previously stated. The fact it was s light fog probably added to the true colors and soft light which are terrific. The bonus for me is the fact that this Waxwing actually has the red "wax" on it's wings. Many times they do not, and I always think it misses something without the reason for which it is named. Terrific all around image.

Wonderful image, Karl! Perfect pose to show the 'wax' tips on the wings! Beautifully done.
