Beauties, Bob, I especially like two of these, the first with the arched pose and the in flight one with that wing blur that adds a distinct flavor to the shot, especially because it's almost head on.

Thanks, guys. Hung, I was between 10-25 feet from this guy. I was trying to get some shots of an osprey when he decided to feed right near me.

Wow, Bob....

as others have written, great series.

I love them all, especially 1st and last one though. Can't decide which is my fav between these two.

Looks like this little fella was "MEANT to be photographed". I'm happy for you that you had this (maybe almost "once in a lifetime opportunity") with such a cooperative bird.

Colours and detail are fantastic.

What camera and lens combination did you use for these photos?

(or did it pose and give you time to change lenses?)... just kidding.. I'm 99% sure they were all with the one lens, right!

I missed these... Excellent series of shots Bob! I've had a few oportunities to photograph Kinglets and have nevercaptured any near as nice.

I'm very impressed.
