V1 I think is "prettier", Herman, but as a photo, I prefer V2.

More dramatic and unusual.

Two great shots Herman, i like V2 here, i see these are nectar feeders, i thought that would be the case with shape of the beak. And they also take spiders and insects. Its great to see the birds in your country that we probably never see otherwise
