Three great shots. Catching one shot of these little buggers is usually tough!

Ohmygoodness. How beautiful! The background in each of the frames compliment each other so well. These photos were just made for a triptych! Congratulations on an honorable mention! Quite an honor in a challenge like this.

Your bird photography is stunning!

Very nice shots, very good choices ont he inset sizes. Minor nitpick - is the right edge of the lower right not lined up with the upper right?

Nice rufous. They are so tough to capture in the air. The smaller shots do let the main shot down somewhat. 7
