My last RX10 bird photos for a while!

I thought I'd share my last batch of birding photos I took with the RX10 a few weeks ago, that I finally got around to downloading.  These are going to be my last shots from the RX10 for a little while - as I mentioned previously, I agreed to sell the camera to my stepfather who really needed an all-in-one travel cam with a little more reach than his NEX3, and he really liked the RX10.  I'm fortunate that much of my family live in the same town, so I can still access the camera, and he agreed that when he's not traveling he doesn't mind if I 'borrow' the camera for the occasional shoots around town.  But he's leaving on a 45-day trip out of country next week, and after coming back for a few weeks, will be off on a 14 day I've cleared the memory cards, changed the settings back to his, and turned over the camera officially.  Next time I'll probably get to borrow it will be late here's my last batch of birds!:

Comments, questions, critique always welcomed.  All shots were cropped a little - the final originals were typically between 3500 and 4200 pixels on the longest even after some cropping, still plenty of res left to print with.  Certainly a nice perk of the 20MP sensor, which combined with the very nice lens retains excellent detail for cropping.

It's been fun shooting with the RX10, and I'll look forward to borrowing it again in the future to play with!
