Hello Cal.....
I always like seeing the GBH....No matter where you are they seem to look the same, basically and they are a neat looking bird on top of that...
Your shots are good for your first time using the camera...As you said...I would like to suggest a couple of things though....Your first shot is good that it shows the area where your GBH was and that is ok if thats what you intended to do...If your intent was to show us a GBH then the shot is not the best way to present the bird...To much area other than the subject...Also with this shot, a bit of sharpen and some saturation to make the photo less flat looking would really help....
Your second shot is good as well...The GBH is a bit soft looking...Bump up the sharpness...Also a little saturation to bring out his colors more...Good shots with both and I hope to see more posts.....
