Hello Chris, I like the first one on the (left side). This is a very good shot and your collage is also good to show different mood of the bird. Well done Ganesh

These sunbirds are the very devil to photograph, constantly on the move. So these two shots are great IMHO, presented to show a male and female Olive-backed from two great POV's and good sharpness in this double.
This is both nice to view and educational.

Wonderful to see the two views of the Sunbird. I saw them in India and know how hard it is to get a good shot of them. Beautiful colors, great details and a nice presentation.

Amazing collage from two wonderful shots which supplements each other perfectly. Very cute scene, great details of the main subjects and terrific BG of both pictures. Lights and colours are simply stunning. Bravo and TFS.

I think you should be happy with both these images, they're both excellent in my view! But they certainly look nice together here too. It's a beautiful little Sunbird and you show it very nicely on the Bottlebrush. Great details and colours and very nicely composed.
TFS and cheers, Ulla

Bonjour Chris, these two shots are perfect!! composition, sharpness and color too. I like the grey BG that exhaust the yellow color of the birds. Well done, Didier.

Ok, if you choose to make a panoramic with 2 different shoot at less make it equal. You have the same bird in the same tree but DIFFERENT colors. The left side (picture) I think is the wrong part, with unnatural colors.
You said these pics aren't perfect. I say: they're closed to. It's a very good idea to put them together and creating a panoramic image. Beautiful colors on both. I especially like the right side pic, because of the unique composition and awesome color contrast.
In the past few days I wasn't able to hang on the site, so I can reply to Your questions with small delay. Click here (also read the note update) and here, please.
Tfs this panoramic beauty, have a nice day, László
Romanian critics are sometimes unsparing in their candid critiques, Chris (don't mind the alliteration here: it was unintentional) ha,ha,ha!
Personally, I find your idea of putting two shots of the Subird together quite interesting. You have shown both the male and the female of the species in this format, thereby giving importance to the size of each image because these are small birds basically and you have taken very sharp pictures of them here.
