Nice work, It's really hard to do wildlife HDR and make it look good. I do notice quite a bit of ghosting in the leaves though.

Are these really HDR images or just tone mapped single file raw or jpeg images? Either way they are pretty cool.

Actually, they are indeed raw files, processed with different exposure levels, and then combined in HDR software. It seems to work fine, although noise can be a much bigger problem if you're careless.

Mugmar, the "ghosting", I think is just the diffraction of light coming through the leaves. If not, my shutter speed wasn't fast enough to stop whatever breeze there was. Not sure.

Edit: I put in considerable effort to make them not look like HDR, while still keeping the advantages of the higher dynamic range. That seems to work for me. This is one of the HDRs I got, before I made some adjustments:
