Cedar Waxings: November 6, 2010. Every year, at this time, the waxwings show up to feast on the neighbors persimmons. I have a lot of time but could never get a good close up of these guys. This year, thanks to Carolyn, i climbed up on the garage roof and was able to get some respectible images. I love the masked face as well as the yellow on the tale that looks like they were dipped in a bucket of yellow paint. Canon 40D with 100-400mm L series lens.
