Neat Looking Birds. I've only seen a few and they were from afar. Thanks for sharing.

Really nice work. I like how you have background separation but not so much as to lose context. Beautiful birds.

What a fantastic set. I especially like the second one (the portrait), it looks like a painting.

As usual, outstanding! I particularly like the second, close-up. One niggle: there seems to be a halo around the bird in the third.
