A first for us yesterday (11th Dec), the first Waxwing we have had to drop into Natures Haven, I couldn't believe my eyes..........I had to get the binoculars out to confirm the identity, then I got the camera out, she returned on and off all day to eat the apples still hanging from the apple trees.........GrinGrinGrinGrin

Well done Julia, this is a beauty. Must be so exciting having them in your garden.
Spent the morning looking for them but no luck.

Great shot, Julia.
Hope you don't mind me saying but I found your copyright logo a little distracting so close to the subject. Grin

They always seem to know when their favorite fruit is ripe. They will land on our mountain ash for a day, and then I don't see the again until another year's crop.

A stunning shot Julia, you must have been **** a hoop at one of these visiting your garden! They've been around in huge numbers near where I live but sadly i haven't had time to get out and photograph themSad
