Photo Submission

Submitted By


Orrtanna, PA, USA


I took this photo at an apple orchard in Orrtanna, Pennsylvania. It was the first week of Spring, and a friend had told me there were lots of Waxwings feeding on the Crabapple trees there. I couldn’t resist going to take some photos of them as they are such beautiful birds that I don’t get to see very often. The Waxwings were so busy feeding that they didn’t even notice me there, so I was able to take lots of photos. This photo is my favorite from that day. I like the bird’s pose as it stretches to reach a crabapple above its head even though there are some right at its feet.

The Waxwing knew of your love and posed for you. They, for me, have always been one of the more “knowing” birds, and have shown up for me when I most needed guidance and re-affirmation. What a blessing for you both.
