Birds in Fight

Common Red Polls - I think - maybe someone can correct me if I've got that wrong.

Panasonic G1 with 14-45mm or 45-200mm.

Pre-focus and wait for birds to fly into the zone. Shutter lag + old photographer reaction-time lag!

White background near the feeder.  Opinions?

Wish they were sharper and/or less noisy - but the birds move so quickly!  'Trilemma' - fast shutter needed - but also some stopping down for depth of field - so high ISO unavoidable.

Thanks for looking!

1/160 second with flash - almost abstract
