Weekly Photo Challenge: Spring

Spring is a Cedar Waxwing bird sitting on a twig with leaf buds showing on adjacent twigs.

Spring to me happened last Thursday while Iwas out in my backyard when a small flock of Cedar Waxwing birds just filled the branches of a couple of trees and some also set down on the ground where there was a pile of dead leaves from last Fall. Apparently, there must have been some insects or perhaps ground worms under the dead leaves because some of the birds were very busy.

Realizing that these were unusual visitors to my backyard I quickly got hold of my digital camera to capture this event. This picture is of one of the birds resting on a tree branch observing me before escaping with his buddies. These birds were quite elusive whenever I tried to get a good shot of them fortunately, I got this nice shot.
