A whole lot better than last year. What lens were you using - I noticed that one was at 400mm. These are very nice - you've learned quite a bit about making use of a long tele lens. Well done!

cosina 100-400 f/4.5....something I got on the cheap, only downside is that it has external focusing and is somewhat slow, a tripod helped in that.

Yes, much better - these are quite good. That lens is the same as the Phoenix/Promaster/Vivitar/etc. - quite good in the closeup range, but difficult to use (at least hand held) at 400 (as you say, the tripod helps). You did well.
