Cedar Waxwings in the Red Hot Pokers

The other day, when dad was working in my yard and we were chatting about next steps, we saw one and then a whole little group of cedar waxwings descend upon the red hot pokers in my yard. I ran in and got my camera and took a few shots, but the telephoto on my camera does allow me to get real good close-ups. So, then I attempted to get a bit closer and they all flew away. I saw them again yesterday, on our way to drop Eddie off at school. Cool, huh?

I'm sorry that the image isn't clearer . . . maybe I can ask for a better camera from Santa!

That's a lovely shot. My camera isn't great if I'm too far away either. One reason I take so many shots of the birds on my deck is I can do that through the window. I get some in the tree but it's hard getting to the right spot without scaring them off.

Thanks, Carver . . . it was really cool to see all these birds clinging to the blooms (if you can call them that). Dad said that they are eating the seeds. Never expected that!
