Very nicely done...I'd have to say #1 is my favorite. Love the contrast between the pink bird and the blue sky!

Great sequence shooting ! I think I actually like the last one best though - maybe it's the background foliage adding perspective.

All very good - even though #3 is not sharp all across the wings I like it best, as it shows some interesting rarely caught aerodynamic effects on the feathers. Good catch!

I've come to expect the incredible from you - especially your bird photography. But these are especially impressive - color, composition, detail... Thanks for sharing!
