Great pictures - like v1 best as slightly different angle to the norm

Good stuff - loads of instant impact and minimal depth of field.

Hi John, 3 well focused shots of this beautiful creature - the expressions you've capture in all 3 are excellent
My main critique on all 3 shots, would be that they all tend to be shot from above the subjects eye level. Now I do realise that there are reasons why you may not have been able to take the shots from a lower angle, but if you can, it does make a big difference to the look of the subject within the image. Worth experimenting if you get the opportunity.
Personally, for head shots, as in V1, I like to try to get all the plumage in to the frame, or make a more severe crop into the image(as per mod), and the same applies with V3, where it would be good to see all of the tail feathers, rather than leave them out of frame. Possibly zoom out a tad to get these details into frame, although in my experience you have to be quick, before the subject moves, or flies away : )
Hope this is of some help.
