Thanks Tim and Harriet.

They did require sharpening, Harriet. The camera was fresh out of the box and I hadn't realized the SR was off, which may have contributed a touch of blur. Check out this later interesting series in the Wildlife forum taken of fast captures with the SR on - it does seem to help when the camera is moving, although it is supposed to be most useful when you are trying to hold it still:

You did a great job in the bif shots.

As you are panning and use the focus tracking at high shutter speed to lock on focus , you are better off not using SR at all. Your movement would have been too much for the camera (SR) to compensate indeed. But for still shots, the SR works great as the vibration (like you pressing the shutter) is small enough.

All my bif shots were done without SR on

Penolta, These are great shots. Almost as though he could land in your hand he seems so close.

I can't decide which is my favorite.

Thanks Daniel and Patty.

Tim, if you liked No 3, you'll love this one from a thread in the Wildlife forum):
