Notes
There must have been three dozen birds and they stayed for hours, even coming back for several more days of visiting. It was a great opportunity to study these birds up close and have the opportunity to photograph them up close. It was a target rich environment.
Description
A group of Cedar Waxwings descended in my backyard and selected my Vitex tree full of ripe berries in mid-July as a site for their picnic. Looking for a clear shot on one of these beautiful birds I spotted this one framed by the branches and the berries. It seemed the perfect representation of what was occurring: the bird at the feast, the perch for support, and the fruit as the perfectly suited meal. All three elements blended ito one picture.
