Crabapple Feeding

Uploaded: March 24, 2017 19:40:26 | Entered: March 24, 2017 19:49:39


A flock of waxwings and robins covered the crabapple tree in my front yard to feed on the crabapples. Taken during a lull in the heavy snowfall during Snowstorm Stella. Edited in Photoshop Raw and used a small amount of Nik Color Efex Pro 4 and Topaz Impressions.
