A Cedar Waxwing
Lens: DA* 60-250mm f4 Camera: K-3II Photo Location: Oregon Coast ISO: 500 Shutter Speed: 1/500s Aperture: F7.1 
Posted By: ToddK, 08-14-2019, 05:28 AM

This is cropped pretty significantly, but the 60-250 is able to pull it off quite well. I missed the better shot when it was much closer but had the wrong lens on.

Entire color scheme works really nice here. We had a couple of waxwings visit earlier in the year and I was never able to get a good shot.

Thanks. I am glad that it hung around long enough to get the shot.

Thanks Dave. We have them in my area of California in the spring and fall, and I have never had much luck either. However the last two trips to Oregon I was able to get some pretty good photos.

Their feathers always bring to mind velvet. Such smooth feathers. Nice capture.
