Very nice set.

Good thing that stop sign is still visible. Made me laugh for some reason.

Love those wax wings! so oriental looking. I've only seen waxwings around here about 2 times, they come and go quickly. Looks cold up there!!

Love those pics Konrad. I'm with Joe, the stop sign made me laugh.

The bird pics are great.

Do you have a telephoto lens to get those bird pics? I don't have much luck with just my camera getting the birds. I'm probably not patient enough.

You got some really great story pics there, Konrad...Here in NE Ohio...We've only had a couple inches total this year...I love it being a little milder, but is kind of weird not having as much snow...It is pretty nippy now and for rest of winter(?)...

Waxwings are such pretty birds. I have seen real ones only one time in North Carolina. All the pictures are great.

Very Nice, Konrad!! Such detail and clarity!

We have waxwings down here, but they must be a different variety. We also have bohemians, ...just no bohemian waxwings.:)

Great pictures, I seemed to like the owl just sitting on the pole.

Thank you all!

Yes
They say, a birding lens should be at least 500 mm,...would be nice! The one used here, [from dear Santa] canon 70 - 200 mm F2.8 IS and 2X Extender, [not the first pic] going to my Rebel XT.
Not cheap, but you get what you pay for......clarity.

Really fantastic pic's . I never heard of a waxwing before. They sure are pretty and something I would like to see in my yard now and than.

What kind of lens did you have to use on these if it is not trouble for you to do so.
