Wintry Weather for Winter Visitors #2
I had a couple of spare hours yesterday morning so I thought I'd check to see if the Japanese Waxwings were still around.
The weather was better than yesterday but the sun was behind the birds. I couldn't go the road behind them as it was being cleared by half a dozen huge snowplows.
I even got a few crappy BIF shots.
It's still really cold, our door gets frozen (inside) every night...................that never happened before.
It was impossible to avoid the cluttered busy background..............
Should have had a faster shutter speed with the above 2.
The deep snow makes it hard to get around to some of my usual haunts so I was glad these were so near my flat..............................
Thanks for clicking this link.......

Excellent pictures again. How I wish I had such subjects near where I live.ReplyDelete
Hi Russell, they're probably all over Japan now (I've seen them on other blogs/websites), I'm sure there'll be some down your way somewhere.Delete
Photos 4 and 5 are my favorites out of the whole wonderful set. Waxwings never have a bad hair day, do they?ReplyDelete
My hair was nasty after being stuck under a warm winter hat for several hours..............Delete
Really bored of Waxwing (sp.) shots recently Stuart - a Bohemian onslaught in the UK is mostly to blame - but your flight shot is fantastic, really evocative. Cheers, MarkReplyDelete
Well I haven't seen any Waxwings for 2 years so forgive the volume..............I've only ever seen them on 2 occasions in the UK so they're still an exotic bird for me!Delete
Love the waxwings, great photos!ReplyDelete
