Bohemian Waxwing male

I have posted many shots of Bohemian Waxwings. I like these ones because they are in a different circumstance. While I was taking shots of them in trees, these ones flew down just a few feet away to take a drink of water in the puddles I was standing in. In the space of a week, the temperature here has gone from an all-time record low of – 42C without the wind chill factor to + 7. In Fahrenheit terms, this is from – 44 to + 44! I can believe in spring now.
