Totally agree! You are off to a really good start. The last one is my favorite!

You are off and running these are far superior to my first shots. Keep up with what you are doing, natural perches and backgounds.

There will be days when you get the shot(s) you missed days, months or years before.

Great shots keep up the good work, they are hard to photography as they are very fast and small.

Thanks! I do everything the hard way.

Thanks! I'm finding that out the hard way. They seem to be camera shy as well.

Thanks, but I doubt that very much.
