Thank you. I've found that a softer image "bleeds" the tips of the feathers into the image which in my opinion enhances the rendering of birds in flight. I purposely turned the sharpness down in camera to aid the result.

Lovely shots of an elegant bird. I've plenty of shots of them stationary and feeding; but none such as these. I'll have to give it a try.

Just so you are aware, I developed this style of shooting over the past 3 years. I shoot manual focus. The birds are too fast and too small to use af. I've found it's how you setup to make the capture more than pressing the shutter.
