No doubt, showing off for you. Both excellent images with sharp detail and good colors. Great lighting in these shots.

That top shot really blazes in curves and patterns--almost could be an abstract, but it is very truly the natural way of the bird.

Thankyou everyone. When everything is right, this lens really shines. In this case the bird was in the right place so that the light was behind me and they were close enough.
