    Really cool to see the full wing spread in #1. great shots, even for heading into sunlight in #3. were you using a flash? it seems like a flash was used for 1 and 2

    Fantastic shots there - really like the first with great exposure and direct eye contact! Nominated!
    As for the last tricky as you have both bright light and dark shadows - I would have underexposed the shota little more to preserve details - flash would be tempting - but I would probably not have thought of using it in field on a bright day.
    Great work - definatly photos to be proud of! :)

    Nice images;)
    On the next shoot try bringing down the shutter speed and panning with the bird to get a motion blur on the wings, it's tough to do but worth the effort.
