Kingfishers in Flight

Wish these were a little closer and sharper. From a color standpoint, I like the second one but the muscle in the beak is rather cool. The third image with 2 inflight Kingfishers is overprocessed and the BG is too busy. These were all take on the same day in September 2017.

I agree with number 2 being the best, David. A bit sharper, and I like the lines of the waves in the background.
