2019—Cedar Waxwing

While photographing the Gallatin River from the concrete arch bridge over the Gallatin River on Squaw Creek Road in Gallatin County Montana on Monday, we noticed a couple of Cedar Waxwings flying back and forth across the river gathering bugs. Occasionally they would perch over the water near the bridge so I got my Nikon D5 and 500mm PF lens and waited for one of them to perch near me. I didn’t have to wait long. My tripod was in use with my NIkon D850 using slow shutter speeds to blur the river’s flow under the bridge so I handheld the D5/500mm PF combination. I love that I can handhold this lens.
