Bohemian Waxwing

Canon 1D Mark IV / Canon 500mm f4

One of my favorite birds - don't get to see them often.

Wonderful color and details, and the berry in its mouth is a real plus!

Was this post-processed in Camera Raw? There seems to be a suggestion of some halo like effects around some of the branches, and I often see this when I'm trying to tone down a bright background with Highlight Recovery tool and similar adjustments.

Hi Jaime,

I'm always impressed by your work but when I opened this image, I exclaimed out loud.. "wow!"

Brilliant bird, great composition and capture. Stunning stuff!!!

Great shot Jamie. Beautiful colours on the wings and tails.

Such pretty birds these - we get them as winter visitors in the UK, but not very common and hard to find.
