Beverly Andrighetti: You are always so kind in your remarks, Astrid. Thank you very much.

A great picture, but the bird is wet - licked by a cat?
Beverly Andrighetti: Ha, ha, don't think this little bird would stick around for that, Louis; no, he's just wet from dunking himself in the pond.
Sweet and just out of the bath. Certainly a different look than the usually perfectly smooth waxwing.
Beverly Andrighetti: Yes, his feathers were wet & rumpled, Mary; but he really enjoyed the cool water on this hot day.
For some reason, Beverly, this feels so Christmasy to me! smile
Beverly Andrighetti: I can see what you mean, Ginnie.
Beautiful like a little decoration Bev. Great stuff
Beverly Andrighetti: Very much appreciated, Janet. Thank you.
Looking a bit bedraggled, but lovely!
Beverly Andrighetti: He kept dunking himself in the pond to cool off, Tom.
What a little beauty
Beverly Andrighetti: It's always a treat when waxwings visit our garden, Bill.

It looks all waxy too Beverly.
Beverly Andrighetti: I wonder if that is how they got their name, Chad.
I love the lighting you've captured on this little guy, Beverly!
Beverly Andrighetti: It was a hot & bright sunny day, Elizabeth.
he needs a hairdo
Beverly Andrighetti: Ha, ha, perhaps something in the punk style, eh, Chantal.

I like his untidy feathers, Beverly - looks quite a charcater
Beverly Andrighetti: I was surprised that he let me get so close to him, Lisl. He certainly was enjoying cooling off in the pond on this hot day.
