Quote: All four get my click,but and i`ll be in the minority here ,they all appear a little too sharp .

Like TonyDy, I also disagree about these images "being too sharp". There is no tell-tale "halo" around the high contrast edges of the subject, or plumage feather detail "blocking up", which are both results of over-sharpening.

Great set of images Brian.
Where do you get all these different perches from?
