Default Tried shooting some birds....

Hello everyone!

Today when I was on my lunchbreak, we had this absolute great weather, quite warm, sunny no clouds on the sky....great for photography...so I took my gear and headed out to catch some birds, to see if I could get me some nice images!
well, I let you decide, did I get good pictures?

ok, I know about the crow, it isn't sharp because it ...well, flew away...but I like it anyway

all exifs are in the pix atleast on my computer...but if for some reason it doesn't work, they are all shot in either iso 1600 or iso 800 and speed is around 1/640 - 1/800

Nice sunny assortment of fine feathered critters! Especially nice light on the first duck on the snow, and great Crow action!

Very nice series! That first one is really lovely, the lighting is excellent. I like the crow because it has such a feeling of motion, very appropriate for a bird flying away.

They came out nice. I'd watch out for that seagull in the second one. Looks like he's ready to attack!
