Well thanks all

I didn't expect a feeding shot to do quite so well, normally they get looked at but not voted for - morbid curiosity I guess.

Perhaps everyone likes the extra of having the flies. Was pretty unpleasant with them all swarming whilst taking the photos, but was pleased with the result for once.

I have some where the sky was the background, but after a few shots I found a bush in the background that I could position the bird against which seemed to give greater depth to the image.

Is it just me? Or does the wing position remind people of bobbing for apples with your arms behind you?

Love it - great colours.

I don't think it's morbid curiosity... it's just so nice to see one of these in a natural setting behaving naturally for a change!

Too many BoP shots now fall into the 'frozen pose with cleaned up background' category that remind me of a stuffed bird in a Victorian glass case.... lol.

Lovely work.

I know what you mean about the stuffed aspect, but would assure you I don't tidy my backgrounds Smile

As shot, apart from the odd dust bunny as I'm useless in PS.
