I came out of the Post Office on East Wellington Road today and noticed some birds up in a holly tree. I took a closer look and was happy to see it was a group of about 12 Cedar Waxwings feasting on the holly berries. I happily took a 30 minute break to photograph them eating. As I watched them I wondered if they had wintered down in the southern US and then had come back early becaus of the early Spring? The light for photographing them was simply awful for the most part, flat and grey, with a bright white sky. Excuse the purple fringing as well, I thought I had pulled it down enouhg in LR but after looking at them again, obviously not! All of these images were shot handheld at 1250 iso, F7.1 , and a focal length of 400-600mm. I was very happy to get them because these were my first shots ever of Cedar Waxwings with berries in their beaks!
