    I like 2, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 Danny - really sharp and crisp. Saying that, I've tried taking images of birds both stationary and in flight and yours are WAY better so I like them all !!

    Lol cheers mate - hopefully got a nice run over to Waihi this weekend so I'll try and get some shots up after that. There's a British car and motorbike gathering over at Whangamata too in early October (might be Labour Day weekend actually ) so that should be good for a few shots too.

    If I had to choose a few favourites (and that's a big "IF" since they are all stunning anyway) then it would be #2 #3 #5 #8 and #10

    Great shots. I especially like it when the background is starkly lighter or darker than the bird.

    Hey thanks folks, really appreciate it. A really fine sunny day here for a change, so arranged to meet up with Chris and his Canon FF for a shoot, very nice to be able to get out. Steve and Boney turned up as well, so great fun !!. Got some half decent shots and I'll sort those out later.

    All the very best folks and thanks again :)

    Danny.
