V.3 gets my vote today, Brian, but all great images and worthy of their own upload. Carol

Like the look of the angled perch, so that the bird is 90 degrees to the camera.

Due to the minimum focussing distance of the 400mm 5.6, have you thought at all, about deploying a 12 mm extension tube, to reduce it down-
Saves most of the cropping, which then saves losing detailSmile
