I was taking shots of the grebes on the pond when this beautiful cedar waxwing landed in the willow beside me, striking the perfect pose. There was a group of them catching insects above the water and no doubt scouting for berry bushes, too..

    Thanks for posting this beautiful shot. I took a picture of a bird I could not identify. This is it. Too cool.

    Thanks everyone for your wonderful comments and favs!! Just wanted to add that, as Richard noted, I did some processing here, in order to improve the looks of some very unsightly leaves on the willow tree, otherwise it would have been left as is.. And Stuart I am glad this helped you identify your bird.. hope to see it on your page soon..

    great capture and processing -- they really are amazing looking birds (they look like the superheroes of winged beings)
