These are the bird photographs that I think are are not too shabby.
My criteria are simple: nicely focussed, good blur in the backround to help the bird stand out, and a bit of glint in the eye. I assign extra brownie points if the subject happens to have an interresting pose, or a nasty spider in its beak, but this does not happen often. To get that, I'll have to spend a lot more time on this hobby, or be very lucky. Time is in short supply, but one can always hope for luck.
