It's hard to be original - They are all great.
Hmm, but there are some strange bright border just where the swallow's body borders with background. Looks little bit strange. But otherwise they are excellent photos :-)

Cheers!

The Peewee is my favorite woodmeister. I love the backlight coming through the feathers. And tack sharp too. Very nice all. Woody

These photos are brilliant woodmeister. Sensational stuff. Looking at these pics is like looking at the real thing itself.

Thanks everyone for checking out the photos and your comments.

CerambyX - Thanks for pointing that out. I didn't notice it at first. I was
trying to deepen the blue of the sky, (it was kind of pale) and may have been
a bit to aggressive.

bobbyz - I kept telling him to turn his head, but he wouldn't listen. :G

Nice variety of great shots!

The 100 400 L seems to worknicely for you!Quality is amazing.

I have the 70 200 2.8 L and love it. But I rarely get close enough for decent Bird Photos. Does the extra 200 MM make a big difference, or do I need to work on my sneaking up techniques?:-)

Thomas.

All great shots but that Peewee is just perfect. Even the stick near it's head is blurred enough that one doesn't take notice.Nice job.
