I've been shooting flowers lately because the yard flowers and prairies are
in full bloom right now, but as I was finishing last night and looking up
the river from a little swing we have in the back yard, I saw a bird flying
from the shadows of a maple tree out part way across the river and back.
Since I had my mZ 100-400 ready and loaded, I thought I'd see what I could
get. Sun was setting and I was in the shadows at ground level, but there
were still some rays of sun on the bird.

Several of the images have quite similar poses, though the small
differences interest me. These are basically all in which I felt the focus
was acceptable. One thing that I really enjoyed is the ability to see the
waxwing's eye or eyes (#8) in this light. Usually it is very difficult to
catch a glint off the eye in normal light (for me anyway) because of the
waxwing's "mask" and head structure.
