Wax On Wax Off

click to enlarge

Cedar wax wings are so elegant and sophisticated.  And the lighting is so pretty on this Summer morning walk near Menomonie, Wisconsin.  Look at all we saw besides birds on this pleasant stroll...




The birds and the bees.






This one is a favorite.  I love the composition. 

Are you celebrating Cyber Monday?  My celebration is very low key.  Just me and my keyboard.

I'm enjoying this summer reprieve. Gotta love the cedar waxwings. They stop by very briefly twice a year around my old neck of the woods. I don't think I'll be seeing them in my new place so thanks for sharing your.s Lovely colours among those flowers.
