One Good Berry Deserves Another

Well I did warn you all that I might post some more waxwing goodness... Here is yet another Cedar Waxwing in snow gorging on our neighbor's Mountain Ash tree berries. It's been a nonstop drunken party over there for going on solid for a couple weeks (the birds, not my neighbors, hah), these guys know how to have fun! ;-)))
Edit: this image was selected as post of day for both the Karma ( http://www.flickr.com/groups/karma/ ) and Spectacular Animals ( http://www.flickr.com/groups/spectacular_animals/ ) groups, thanks so much I am honored! And now it has also been selected for photo of the week at Karma, thanks again!
Image Notes: The only really tricky thing about these waxwing captures is not blowing up the intense oranges and reds of the mountain ash berries, even straight from cam. If you have Photoshop, I have found this recent TLR taming out of gamut colors tutorial ( http://www.thelightsright.com/TameOutOfGamutColors ) very helpful.
