This shot is really neat. Normally in this type of shot (birds), I would prefer to see the action frozen, but the movement in this shot certainly adds to it. Very pretty birds, certainly not common in the UK.

Beautiful birds. Yellows and pinks seem unnatural.

Simply gorgeous...the movement, the blur and the deep luscious red...what a beautiful dance you have captured here.

I really like the combination of movement and static in this capture and the bold & brilliant red backdrop just adds to capture our eye. In the foreground you have the one bird that sits still long enough for us to make out all the details and brilliantly colored tips of wing and tail. What adds interest to an otherwise static scene is the addition of movement. Two other birds are present in the picture in blurred motion.

Very interesting. Most of the time I see a nature shot where there is blur I think that the photographer didn't use a fast enough shutter but in this case it looks intentional...and it works. Great job. The contrast in color in this photo between yellow and red makes the photo seem even more dynamic. (9)

This is cute, colors are nice and intense and the focus achieved on a single subject.

This is a great image - the color combination is awesome. Great job of saturating feathers and bring out the yellow against the red. I like the motion, but the colors really make this shot. <7>

This is interesting. I like the flutter of the lower bird's wings. Seems a tad overprocessed, but I like the effect of it.
