Waxwing Launch by TerribleTer Waxwing Launch by TerribleTer
I have been hoping for a close-up shot of Cedar Waxwings for weeks, so imagine my delight when two of them flew past me and perched on branches just ten feet away from me in South Park Wildlife Management Area in Jackson Hole, WY. Fortunately, I had my camera set at a high shutter speed and managed to capture this one's take-off.

What an awesome shot of such an amazingly beautiful bird! I've been just wanting a good look at those little buggers. They like to be high in trees, away from cameras. They're skittish too, can't get near tree without all them flying away.

Thanks for your comments, and I know what you mean about their being skittish birds. I hope you get a close-up photo op of them soon.
