First birds in flight with new V2

I mostly shoot macro/micro, but I´m getting more and more interested in birds in flight. However, my D200 is a little bit slow and loud (I try to get as close as possible). I was thinking about a new camera and was torn between a D7100 and a V2. Because of the silent mode and the high fps I bought a used V2 a few weeks ago. For what I want to shoot it was the right decision, I think.

Here are my first birds in flight shots. Both M-Mode / MF and I was about 2 m (7ft) away.

Image two is not tack sharp, but the position of the bird makes me smile (Arrgh! To fast!)

Now I wait for the FT-1 and better light.
