Hey francesco

I like the pictures... you know why ?

The background! Totally blurred.. I think they call it 'bokeh' Very very nice.
The bird seems to be frozen :G. The branches draw a bit to much attention. 2 bad there is a branch before his head in the second picture

cheers,
Tim

Thanks Tim

yes I agree about nr. 2, but few seconds later it flew away so...

That's bokeh, the japanese word to define the "out of focus" background of a photo.
If not underexposed a small amount of noise can be noticed in the 100% size pic, but nearly nothing at all in the resized screen res ones: but I equally loose some mins in photoshop with th blur tool (brush) to clean up the red and blue channels, in order to have reallysmooth bkg (sometimes I use masks and Gaussian blur, only very rarely, in Night shots, Noise Ninja) and smaller file size.

F.R.

I have photo's with a blurred background were you can see some objects still present in the background. Those will not be possible to blur in PP. So your 'bokeh' was great straight out of the camera, no color differences. Very nice.

The last picture is a bit soft.. probably 100% crop

I agree with Tim, the "Bokeh" background really draws your eye to the bird. I know how nerve racking it is to try an get a capture before the little suckers take off. In light of that pressure you did a superb job of getting the right things in focus. You can't control were the bird decides to land so I wouldn't worry too much about the obstacles that tend to get in the way. That's nature. Good shots,
