Nice variety of tropical birds. I recognize all but No 5 - any idea what it is?
I especially like the Lapwing (#6) - it clearly shows the spurs on the wings (it is a type of spur-winged plover)

in perfect humility and honesty i think no 2 is the most difficult shot of all.

the other shots seems to lack the usual punch, sharpness and brilliance that i am used to see from NHL shots. This is a honest feedback.
