When you wait all day for a waxwing then 7 turn up!

Being chasing these pesky devils for weeks now in gales and snow

I have been trying to get an isolated shot with a uncluttered background, and today while I was waiting for them to come onto the trees they landed several times on this post, after several failed attempts I managed this shot of most of them looking towards the camera

I know what you mean about chasing around after these, never appear when you are ready.
The last ones I saw were on the car park at B&Q and no I didn't have my camera with me

Great shot
