A beautiful bird in an very good photo. You are very lucky to have this kind of subjects around. I understand your pain (mosquito, rain, not enough light), but finaly the satisfaction to have your favorite bird in a good photo is great.
Best regards, Dan

Im generally up for work at 245am and make a point of watching the sun rise throughout my morning at work....This capture of the Waxwing is absoloutely splendid be there clouds or not..The sharpness is superb and the colours are just terrific...Well done for getting up for an early start...The birds have less fear in the early morning I think as they have a desperate need to feed and as such are less wary.
All the Best

Hi Kathy , this is a fine shot of the cedar waxwing , the noise is not to bad for a high ISO and the focus, color, detail , and composition are all good . I do notice that your aperture is set to f/9.5 here , maybe a bit closed for low light ?
hope you find the whole flock of waxwings next time , they are a beautiful bird.

Excellent shot of this Cedar Waxwing, beautiful colours, and even with the bright background you handled it really well, stunning colours and well framed. I might have tried bracketing some shots with the exposure compensation in the low light, or perhaps using a fill flash, but that could have the disadvantage of scaring the subject away, its all a big learning curve, looking forward to seeing more,
Cheers Rick :)

Many thanks for chance to see your nice photo gallery and kind comments to my shot.
You have produced a fine picture of so beautiful bird. Especially I like great exposure despite the light BG. Details of the image, natural colours and composition of the picture are excellent. My compliments and TFS.
