Sensational. What a remarkable set, and what remarkable optical design advancement that enables such IQ using a zoom with 2x TC! Unimaginable only a little time back.
Kudos to Sony and to Peter the expert bird photographer.
If I had to pick a favourite it would be #13.

The Australian Kookaburra is renowned for beating it's prey to death whether it be a snake, lizard, or a sausage purloined from a family BBQ. The kingfisher belongs to the same family albeit a much smaller version and exhibits the same behavior beating the living bejeesus out of these crabs
