2018 Best Of #2


There was a large invasion of Waxwings into Hakodate in early 2018..............


Most of these shots were towards the end when the flocks were hungrier and less wary. These ones were taken near my apartment with the 500 f4 and the beige coloured buildings provided a nice background.

Japanese Waxwings have yellowish bellies and red-tipped tails...........







Bohemian Waxwings have yellow-tipped tails..............





These were taken with the 100-400............












A couple of weeks earlier there were far more but it was difficult to get such nice pics. A shame as there were lots of snow covered berries. There weer lots of blizzards though and it was usually pretty dark.

These shots were from earlier............




And some WIFs to finish with..................
