These two are just super nice shots, Robert. I notice that you are shooting a bit more often with your a9. Do you prefer it over the other Sonys?

Whew...I really like this one. It projects a rather dark and daunting image.

The first shot is incredible. Both images are really sharp and nicely done!

Chris...I am sooo jealous of the Kingfisher image. It is really nicely done as is the shot of the green heron. There are a couple of belted kingfishers on the lake that I frequent, but I simply cannot get close enough for any kind of decent shot. :-(

Very nice and sharp shots of both the male and the female finches.

Lovely. If these were mine, I'd definitely print the first.

Beautiful shots, Matt. The first one is so nicely composed. You're really getting good detail with the 1.4 TC on the 500 lense.
