    Wow! Excellent photos!
    They're great looking birds but they're bloomin hard to capture. Nicely done!

    Wonderful, would be a superb moment for me to get one as good as both of those. Was thinking you must live in the wilds somewhere to get them - yep I was right - The wilds of PUTNEY !

    Superb pics. The 1st is very good, with excellent separation from the background, and lovely iridescent colours. The 2nd is nearly amazing, with the wing blur and crisply sharp body. The only thing that would improve it is the birdie being a tadge further out from the tree to get a bit more separation. Not much you could do about that of course, and they must be highly difficult to capture being small and fast, so congrats and looking forward to some more...
