I like the last shot too! Seriously, that bird wants to be a model, or something. He seems to really enjoy having his picture taken!

Great work with the zoom. You got good detail on a white bird, not an easy thing to do. Well done!!!

These are gorgeous images. I love the 2 shots against the blue sky background. Definitely worthy of framing. Beautiful colors and composition. Wow.
