    I have ran and hid from doing this.
    Then I decided I really should have a go at it.
    And it was a good bird to chose as they are black and white. DSCN2993.jpg

    G'day Arthur

    Hmmmm .... I think that #1 & #2 are a tad blurry mate > I know it's hard with a long lens + a moving subject to get 'em 100% cracker sharp, but #3 & #4 are better

    Of #3 & #4 I like #4 better ... the bird is facing us and showing an interest in what's happening + the face & eye is sharp > well done!

    I wonder whether it's possible to increase the image contrast a tiny bit to make the feathers a bit more black rather than dark-dark grey

    Hope this helps

    I would like to see how 3or 4 came out in color...
    Wildlife is kind of tough b&w.

    The focus looks out in the first three and you've clipped bits in the first two. It's never the best whennthe subject is moving/facing away.

    No 3 needs to be more to left of frame and No 4 more to the right.

    I really don't know why you decided on the b+w conversion it doesn't add anything imo.

    I would have preferred them in color. 3 and 4 are probably the strongest out of the bunch.

    I'm just going to echo the rest here. I would love to see the colour versions, especially 3 and 4.

    It can't be seen from the shots as I was sitting in the car and this was on the other side of the road.
    And it was moving along under the tree line that has been put in to stop dust.
    This is why I had to edit them so there was more detail in them.
    Thanks for all the comment on this lot.
    As for colour I took them in this mode so I only have them as these are.
