I think I'd like these better with a slightly slower shutter speed, so we'd get a little motion blur on the wings, but these are nice views we don't often get of these birds

I really love the first two. Everyone has different opinions of things. I usually like my subjects sharp and the motion shown in the background. But that is just me. But sometimes I like the opposite.

.... the problem that presents itself is that these backyard birds all travel at different speeds and rate of wing flaps vary. It's hard enough to capture these types of images, and due to the amount of time I have to apply just to be in position to get the capture, I set my camera at the fastest shutter speed necessary to encompass the mentioned speeds of any and all birds that may unpredictably appear. Shortly put, I take it as it comes. That same bird may re-appeoach at a different speed with a different rate of wing flap and produce the image style you suggested.

Thank you for the interest in my photo.
