Really nice pictures, serendipidy!

I mostly like the palm leaves. Because of that geometrical pattern and the tiny white hair and waterdrops.
About composition: did you try to do this motive diagonal? (Not this specific picture. Surely won't work. I meant reframing)
Might give it an extra touch if it brakes out of the rectangular order.

Thanks Maximilian. Sorry for delay, but just read your reply. Good suggestion about diagonal framing. I took this and cropped again on diagonal several tries.
The delay was worth waiting for it.
The first one looks best IMHO because of the ascending direction from left to right
(there was something psychological about giving a positive feeling...  ::) ;) )
But the others are also fine.
sometimes you have to close your eyes to see properly.

Thanks rpt and Maximilian. :)

I agree that the first one is best because of the ascending left to right direction.

I recently noticed that the composition of many of the birds and animal shots posted here on CR that I like the best are the ones in which the animal is facing towards the left side of the frame. I finally figured out that is probably because, since I read from left to right, I subconsciously scan from left to right and therefore see the animals face first instead of it's rear.
