Thanks guys for the comments!

The pictures were cropped very little because I was very closed to the GBH who was standing still watching for preys. The closeups were taken at 500 mm at close range with lens wide opened at f/6.3. The Bigma is a good lens for the money but by no means a great lens. I could tell my pictures are not as sharp as my friend's pictures . We were shooting side by side and he was using a Nikon D800 with a 70-200mm f/2.8. His cropped pictures look better than mine which are not cropped.

Love the third one that shows the "teeth", the ridges in the bill that allow them to hang on to their catch. Nice series.
