Default Birds - different species

One of my favorite subjects are birds in their natural habit. I'm looking forward for your comments.

That squirrel was living dangerously - I saw a GBH making a meal of a one once. Who won this stare-down contest, I wonder?

Great shot - very dramatic capture.

Thanks! It was just the early morning meeting (they were facing the sunrise - that's why they have that color)... they just stared at each other and that was all. I suppose they were old friends, so no one won.

Love the mud Swallows.
The first GBH is nice and sharp but, the high lights are blown. I would have raised my shutter speed for that shot. otherwise its a good shot.
I like the last one too. good work!

You're right, Goldwinger: the GBH photo could've been better. I don't usually take pics in the middle of the day, with the strong sun above my head and that's why I didn't know how to set up the camera to still keep a nice bokeh. I didn't like the background... But, I'm still learning and thank you for your advice.

Good job. I really like the animal humor in the last two shots. To me that's what sets them apart.
