Prefer the unobscured view in V1. Loads of feather detail getting so close.
Love the bee flying in, in V3 Peter. Bit noisy but to be expected at that ISO but a
great action image.
Do you have software to help remove noise?

Nice set Peter, a little more contrast on the first to negate the glass might just bring out the bird a touch which is a juvenile I think, maybe a blackbird?

A great set of images. V1 for the bird which I think is a juvenile blackbird. We have a number of them in our garden which we feed on grated cheese. The bee, caught in flight is excellent.

Sweet pictures. Although the pros take fab pics of birds etc. with their top-of-the-range equipment, I often think that those of us who just have a go with what we've got get some more natural-looking shots. These are lovely. Smile
