This week’s Photo of the Week comes from Bob Cochran of Powell, Wyoming. He saw this Cedar Waxwing spreading its yellow-tipped tail near a creek in the Bighorn Mountains of Wyoming in August 2012. “The area had thick cover with plenty of berries in the bushes,” he says. “I was a bit surprised when the bird put on a display.” Bob used a Canon EOS 5D Mark II and a 600mm lens.
