Nice to see these back. I just clipped the tail in the 2nd one. Should have put the auto focus up to the last spot.

Wow! Fabulous captures.
The ones here are extremely skittish; I rarely get but a glimpse of them in the tree tops.
How in the world are you looking “down” on one?

Nice shots, Rex. You could crop the one with the cut-off tail even more, into a portrait, and convince everyone you planned it that way.

Both are fantastic but the second one needs a frame and a nicely lit wall. Outstanding.
