That's a pretty good shot for a white bird (for a 1st shoot)

... and the butterfly composition is perfect!

The first images is a sub-sepcies of the Hawk Moth, also called a Hummingbird Moth, but I've never seen this variety before.

The second picture is clearly an Ivory Billed Woodpecker, and I can't identify what kind of bird the third is.

However, all of these are wonderful images!!!!!!

These are terrific photos. I don't think anyone could improve on the 1st and 3rd one. For me the color and composition are just perfect. Even the white bird, which for me was one of the hardest things to get right, is great. I can only say that it would help to give it a little minus exposure compensation on your next shot at it.

Kind regards

Very nice photos. You are definitely enjoying your new camera. I can tell from your photos. The Hummingbird Moth is a great capture. Nice exposure and you caught the wings very nicely. The other 2 are also well done, but the first really got my attention. Woody
