Cedar Waxwing

I was out shooting yesterday, trying to get my self-portrait done (it will be posted soon). I was taking it outside by a berry tree, and pretty early in the shoot, we noticed that there were some pretty birds in the tree. We kind of ignored them and continued on with our shoot. When we were done, we realized they were still there. So I got my 70-200mm lens out and took some pictures of them. They were so beautiful, especially because of the bright berries on the tree and the snow that enveloped them. When we got back inside, we did a search to find the name of the bird, which we found to be the cedar waxwing. We then did a search to identify the tree they were inhabiting and found it to be called the Crateagus "Winter King" tree. So beautiful.

This is a reminder of God's creation and how detailed it can be.

Friends, winter is here....

  1. Sarah, I really like these two shots. Might eventually order a print of the ceder waxwing. It's so much better than what I've ever managed.

    1. Barbara- Thanks!!! I'm hoping you got your image of the sheep. Let me know if you're interested in purchasing the cedar waxwing. It's still one of my most favorite images!!
