G'day Johann,

My preferred images are 1 & 3, as the birds are not so tightly framed by branches. I would recomment the the branch in the second image may want to be cloned out to provide some room for the bird to appear not quite so crushed (its just the preception).

Nice lighting and nice sharp eyes.

Have fun and keep up the good work.

Regards,
Craig

Thanks Craig, Will see if I can clone out that branch.
I have finally managed to get a laser type trigger to catch birds in flight like the shots you have posted a while back. Have not gotten around to it yet but winter is coming and birds are going to the feeding spots more and more so will try it out.
Used it for a cycle marathon at Lake Como in Italy a few weeks ago and work pretty well (It is a home made set-up)
Hope all is well :-)

G'day Johann,

I dont have a laser trigger, just a remote cable release that I use manually and just guess when to take the shot (yes pretty good guessing). I had thought of using a laser trigger at one stage, although for myself, I personally feel that there is more skill involved when doing it all manually than using a trigger setup.

Although I know a few people who dont have the reflexes or the time or the patients to sit there for hours on end just to get one shot and so a trigger system for them would be a means to them being able to get some reasonable shots.

Although, one of my camera's will take a shot when something is in focus, if I set it up that way, then it only relies on the focusing system not an actual trigger as such.

I look forward to seeing some more of your shots.

Regards,
Craig

My plan with the trigger is to get a real close up but with wide angle to show the surrounding (blurred) but give the subject context...

Here another shot:
