The water is great in #1, and I like how you nailed the focus so well in the last one.

The second one is nice but the red reflection in the water is a little distracting. But I know all too well that when shooting birds it's very hard to control the environment!

Fantastic. I like very much #3. Only and idea: the first one could be marvellous if you show the reflexion of the bird in the water and cut the empty space above it. But you did a great job. Welcome!

Wow, what a good start, you have done well.
Love the sharpness in #1, and the BIF is great too.
