Very good shot Ray. V2 is the best for me. Not too sure what the mod is all about?

Some lovely detail of the back and tail plumage in V1 and I do like the way he's looking over his shoulder.

the best way to photograph birds IMHO is the way you have taken V1 with the view of the back detail and we have the best of both worlds with the side face and great eye - well done

V1 is a great angle pose Ray, but you must always focus on the eye. This looks as though due to the light you have stopped down, reduced dof and focussed on the wing bars as the eye and head are not sharp. V2 with the bird square on is sharp throughout but has a distracting bg. I appreciate fully if a bird lands on a perch we go for it, but try to get them with a clearer bg.
Great efforts in poor light

2 very pleasing shots Ray and good advice from Richard. Not sure what focusing method you use but I tend to lock the central sensor in the middle of the frame so that I have control of which one the camera will be using, focus on the eye and still holding the shutter button half pressed, recompose and then shoot. I find this to be more accurate than letting the camera decide for you, hope this makes sense,

Ray I honestly think these are amongs your best bird shots yet - in challenging light with a high ISO you've done very well, not to menstion the less than perfectly staged b/g's - sound advise from Richard and Geoff - Ina
