    #1 - You filled the frame with the subject but the on-camera flash isn't very flattering. Watch the backgrounds.

    #2 - Looks like you should look into a good macro lens or a set of extension tubes.

    #3 - Boring shot...the baby birds look dead.

    All your shots have centered subjects.

    The on-board pop-up flash is a big no-no when shooting portraits indoors, but if you had a hot shoe flash with a bounce/swivel head you can take very nice portrait type shots by turning the head and bouncing the flash off the ceiling or a wall instead of firing it straight ahead.

    The pictures on this web page were taken with a hot shoe flash.
