Number three gets my vote as the best to date so far in your birding shots. I would definitely print this and put it on my wall.

I definitely, love this shot.

Mahalo,

Tom

Thanks Tom. That one was in very very bright sunlight and hard to shoot with any detail.

I really like #3 & #4.

#4 is a strong composition. You have the blurred out background, and then you have the strong vertical branch zig zagging through the frame.

#3 is just as strong & then you also have that nice vibrant red bird! Beautiful. Beautiful. Very impactful!

Love them!

Take care,
Glen

Thank you Glen. I've just gotten my K10D back from repairs and it seems to be doing alright. The composition of most any of these photos of small birds is due almost entirely to where the birds land and the available light at that instant. I may shoot 60 photos to get a good one or two. They move so fast and sit still for only an instant right now. Later as it turns colder they will perch in the sunlight for extended periods waiting their turn at the feeder.
