Ruth : For those shots I used my Canon 40D with the Canon 100-400mm L series lens .

Nick - beautiful - I laughed out loud at the 2nd photo because I think he's blowing you a raspberry!

That second shot is really cool - birds always look so different when you see them straight-on. He almost looks like he's blowing you a kiss - haha!

Absolutely amazing shots. And that last one is just too special with it looking right at you like that.
