Photohunters: Gathering and End

There was a gathering of waxwings and juncos, some of whom were perched on the ends of the branches, partying in the tree.
The first three shots in this post were taken at the beginning of the year, but the last shot was taken at the end of the year.
I thought I'd show you shots of the individuals who were part of the gathering. They are both small birds but I used more zoom on the first one.
The bird above is a waxwing and the bird below is a junco.

They are so sweet! I wish I had a better camera so when I'm out hiking with the hubby I might be able to get some close-ups of the wee birds we encounter in our neck of the woods! Happy almost New Year Carver and all the best for 2013.

Cool shots, Carver -- have to say though that I especially like the first one best. The composition... and the beautiful blue sky made it for me. :)

Wonderful pictures. I love how birds sit at the end of the branches so lightly. Thank you for showing us some close-ups

I almost missed this great post (thank goodness for my Google Reader). And it has a Waxwing in it -- my very favorite bird ever. So glad I came back to it.

Nice combo as always.
