    The last two are the best. I absolutely love number 4, it has a great composition.
    Also, number 5 is very captivating.

    All very cool, not to much into the super close up one but the others are neat.

    I think your crops are too close on #2 & 5.

    #2 would have been great in a portrait orientation with the full compliment of tail feathers.

    #4 has the flamingos foot cut off and would like to see what its about to eat and then some.

    #4 has such a cool look about it.

    Nice shots nonetheless and hope you had a good outing.

    Thanks for all the great feedback. I think that # 4 turned out great too. That was the best shot of the day.

    You cropped off his feet :( (in this last one).
    You might eventually want to leave centering your subjects this much behind you and venture into slightly more elaborate compositions?

    I know I cut his feet off. I guess not every picture is perfect. I really enjoy how the rest of them turned out.

    Nice shots.

    To me it looks like you should boost the saturation a bit to make the colours pop a bit more.

    Cheers
