Great shots! On V2, the colours pop! I like that. V1 might need a tad more saturation. I'm not a Cannon shooter, but if your camera, with the same lense has multiple focusing areas would it be possible to focus on both the wings and head/eyes? v1 is a great shot as-is, but if the head and wings were tack-sharp, with a tad more saturation, v1 would be absolutely perfect. The framing and composition is smack on. For both v1 and v2, I might want to fill the frame a bit more though. Get in a bit tighter to the subject. (I'm not a fan of post-production cropping). (I have just recently learned to "fill the frame" and get in as tight as possible). Other than those few suggestions, I think both of these photographs are very, very good. As far as the subjects in both versions, I personally like v1 best, only because I love the wings! Keep up the good work! (I am unsure who said it first, but it rings true to photography: "A day without learning is a day wasted"
