Cedar Waxwing's hummingbird hover

Sometimes when I am out on bird watch, I see the most amazing things.   Who knew, for instance, that Cedar waxwings are capable of hovering like a hummingbird for even an instant.  It's a good thing I had my camera ready at eye-level, otherwise I would not have been able to capture the following images for you to see, as moments like this typically happen in the blink of an eye.
