    I was just about to got out and purchase my Kiln when you restored my faith in the photographic art of cutting things off - seriously I was.
    The other set are boreing anyone can shoot birds with heads on but to catch a bird of prey just going out of the frame is excellent work - keep it up:hail:

    Nice! They look very similar to some of mine. As for the first one......they never seem to stay still long enough.

    I can't help but think of one of the funniest lines in movie history:

    "We've got not food. We've got no jobs. OUR PET'S HEAD ARE FALLING OFF!!
