puffed up

puffed up, originally uploaded by gawdessness.

From yesterday - we had so many Waxwings feasting on the fermented crab apples in our backyard and I took too many pictures to even begin to deal with.

This bird appeals to me because of the attitude I imagine I can see in it.

Cute! You don't happen to have this in color too, do you? I'd like to see the contrast.

I love it. What a perfectly captured "attitude".

Beautiful! I love the colour gradients on these birds. I'd never seen this type of waxwing until we moved out here.


Moi said...

chuckling at the fermented crabapples. how tipsy do your birds get? perhaps that's the source of the 'tude? :-)

The tip of his head...

I like it in b&w, but even more I like the shade of red behind him. Now I'm going over to flickr to see the rest!

I didn't see this until now, but I really like the color picture. It's great that the background matches the top of the bird's head!
