These are all great, but the last photo is my favorite of the set. The male's wings and face are perfectly lit and stretched, but it is the female that tells the story. Specifically, she appears to be checking out his tail feathers... one of the key characteristics she assesses when making a mate choice, knowing this really adds to my own interpretation and enjoyment of the photo.

nice work

I completely understand. I checked out a few tail feathers in my younger days too.

Philip - these are a pleasure to view. First and last are over the top ~ Ron

This is a great set and you captured a very interesting event. My suggestions are that the exposure on a couple of them seems a little hot with some clipping in the white on the breast of the male. If I were presenting these I might just pick the sharpest two or three shots with the best exposure and only show them. There is also one little cut off part on the perch where it looks like someone clipped off a twig that wasn't in such a good location. I would probably try to clone that out.

Lovely images and YGMV, Philip! I didn't realize until yesterday that those birds are actually tiny.

Yeah ... and they are so damn hard to shoot! The sequence shots you have here are simply amazing! That last image is perfect in every way ... the lighting, the exposure, the background, the story telling, etc, etc! Great job!

I noticed a catchlight on the eye of the 2 birds. Was that from the sun or your speedlite?
