These are really good.
I've taken a lot in Japan, but think the markings look slightly different fron the Japanese White Eye aka Mejiro.

From the photos I've taken, they seen to be more green than yellow, especially around the head and there seems to be less colour around the bib.
I might be wrong though as I'm just going from memory.

Nice and sharp photos, nonetheless.

Gorgeous Ken - gotta go for #4 as it's not often I've seen two together like this.

Great series of a beautiful bird. The last one is really special as frogfish said because you managed not one but two birds whose constant movement must have made that an extremely difficult shot.

Thanks all, glad you ike this series.

mickey: Nice to know there's another one that looks alike the Oriental White Eye, do you have any link to your photos?

Frogfish and Susan, I took about 100 shots of this bird and luckily there are few keepable 2 in 1 perch, but #4 & another pic (not uplaoded to flickr yet) has got 2 birds in focus.

I am considering purchasing the Sigma 500 f4.5. You may have just sealed the deal. These images are
remarkable to say the least. Image quality is through the roof.

Do you mind sharing some of your processing technique?

Thanks Terry, sorry for the late reply.
My workflow:
1. select the best from the shots in terms of clean background, pose (with eye contact) and composition.
If none of the above, will keep at least 1 or 2 if it's a new bird to me, else will skip and proceed to the next bird.
2. crop to aspect ratio (3:2)
3. adjust the exposure
4. sharpen if necessary
5. remove noise if necessary
6. save a copy, resize and upload to flickr
