Hi, my dear friend.
Your last three photos deduce you in number of the best bird photographers. My congratulations and thanks for chance to see so amazing pictures. All three shots are the best and absolutely outstanding. It would be impossible if it would not be (sorry for my English). POV is fantastic.
You mast take fourth shot. You are from above, the bird is from below :- )))
Bravo, Bravo and Bravo.
An amazingly innovative point of view, Kevin.
You have captured the bird in a posture that is rare to see.
The action shot is sharp and crisp and again speaks volumes about your great gift as a nature photographer.
TFS and take care.

This is really amazing!
You've done so exceptionally well with your macro lens!
It's so good the frozen pose and the beauty of the extended wings.
You managed so good the exposure that got not traces of noise on the dark feathers under shadow.
You must have had a lot of light there, impressive the 1/4000 shutter speed at ISO 200.
A remarkable picture!
My compliments and thanks for share it.

!!!!!!!!!!!!! 2 points !!!!!!! the pic talk alone. Luciano.
This is simply amazing! I'm quite lost for words seeing another fantastic shot from your most impressive theme of in-flight blue jays.
I guess i couls take this one is a funny way, too - with the pose of the jay saying "Stop!" - just like a policeman in traffic control :))
Again, needless to say you've acomplished magnificent sharpness and you managed to freeze the action suprbly.
I also love the bonus picture from the workshop, too!
I have nothing but imense respect for you for this entire series, my friend! Especially considerring that you shot all these shots with a short macro lens. (how was it, by the way?)
BRAVO and TFS

This is like you had a second camera set up for a different angle from your last post.
The focus is sharp and the plumage is well defined.
Excellent colours and lighting.
This is exceptional clarity.

Fantastic POV Kevin, sharp and clear shot, great colors, one more in fantastic series
I have to be honest and say that I have missed your series but now I have the delight of looking over it...I really am stunned at what you have achieved here..It is awe inspiring..and with just a 105mm lense..you had to be close!!...This in all honesty is the best inflight picture I have ever seen and I commend you on your thought to create such a scene.
Wow Kevin...how do you do it? Consistantly high level. Everything about this is very impressive indeed, one of your best in my opinion. Clear sharp, perfectly timed and amazing exposure and DOF...very well done my friend.
