Here are the last of the series - two series of 3 each, the first flying alongside and the second three overhead. K20D with DA 55-300:

These are the best of the whole series Penolta, especially #1 and #3.

Very nice series, and the focus looks very good. It could be my monitor (or my taste) but I thought the first one looked a little over-processed, and #5 has a sharpening halo around it, but it's otherwise a wonderful shot, one of my favorites. I think that I like the second one best, but just barely - I really like the series.

Thanks Tim and Harriet.

They did require sharpening, Harriet. The camera was fresh out of the box and I hadn't realized the SR was off, which may have contributed a touch of blur. Check out this later interesting series in the Wildlife forum taken of fast captures with the SR on - it does seem to help when the camera is moving, although it is supposed to be most useful when you are trying to hold it still:
