A Cedar Waxwing Treat

A Cedar Waxwing Treat.
A special treat for the participants of our Workshop in Mobile this past Sunday was a flock of Cedar Waxwings that flew in and landed in the tree in front of us! As we were waiting for Osprey to fly into the platform the flock flew in and perched in the tree while everyone got some really nice images. For many folks, it was their first time ever seeing the bird, for most it was the first time ever photographing the Cedar Waxwing. I felt like a proud father seeing the group quickly change their focus from far away to nearby, with smooth movement. When the Osprey flew by again, they quickly adjusted to the movement. Seeing photographers adjust so quickly shows the ability to go with the flow, and that is what photographing birds is all about!
