Wonderful photos Panamon!!! Stunning detail on those hawk pictures. What kind of lens do you use? I agree with everyone's assesment of the juvenile cedar waxwing because it looks so much like the parent but with camaflouge. :-) I am thrilled when I see waxwings here and I have never seen a juvenile one so your photo is a special treat for me!!

ROFLOL - "headless hawk" You are too funny halo!

Thanks for the IDs folks!!!!

Re.: headless hawk, yeah I was scratching my head when I saw the headless thumbnail the first time wondering how the heck I got a headless photo posted :)

Re.: lens used, I had my "Universal" 18-200MM VR Nikkor mounted for that picture. It's not the sharpest lens in my arsenal but as said in the intro this fellow allowed me to get really close at around 5-6 feet (with a few branches in the way though) which allowed me to frame him nicely.

Pam, get another slushy and freeze that brain again :)

Another pic just to make sure that the head is still there ;)

Great photos, Panamon... especially that incredible one of the hawk looking right at the camera. Did you have a rat in your other hand waving it at him to get him to pose like that?!?!?! Seems to work at the kid's portrait studios... albeit, not with a rat, in most cases.

LOL, no attention getting toys used, I think he would have smelled a rat if I'd done that ;)
