I'm with you for this one, Mike. The bird IS the issue. I love to see birds from all parts of the world, even more when they are unknown in Europe. This is a very good picture of another beautiful bird. Thanks for sharing it.

A really unusual bird, that is, I've never seen one before. You've caught it well. The feeder doesn't bother me and I don't think I would have bothered with the blur!

Hmm...it's not a bug, it's not a spider, it's not a s---fly, hey, it's a BIRD!!!!!LOL! Spring on two legs has returned to Tenkummah! All kidding aside, that's a great capture, Mike, as you say, when would you see another? I see in fancy bird magazines people put cut oranges out to attract orioles, me I just watch them do acrobatics on my hummingbird feeder. Very good notes, nice pose, rare shot! Well done! Linda

Nice shot Mike,
Fantastic detail and colours. The added gaussian blur in the BG is perfect.
Excellent capture Mike, Thanks for posting.
Ha! I find it funny that you didn't like the unnatural look of my flash yesterday! :-)
The bird looks great and it's a great looking thing. To be honest I find the OOF feeder quite difficult to look at, makes me think my eyes are fogging and I keep blinking!

Hello Mike, Really neat lookin' bird! I like the orange chest colors most of all. This is well composed with good details and sharpness. Excellent note, Great job on this!
Great capture Mike. I agree with your comments about the issue being the bird.
However, just in case I did a workshop (just for something to do :-) ).
Hope you like it.
Execellent baltimore oriole, I have a cool story about one of these I might tell some day.
Thanks for sharing it with us.

A new one for me - we get three in SA, but I have seen only one of them - beautiful call - I was just going to say he has a juvenile look, then read the note TFS - a lovely young bird - the feeder is part of life today - I feed "my" birds everyday too. Regards

Good visual impact.
Aptness of the photo for the site: excellent.
Personal assessment of the note: complete.
Thank you very much for sharing. First time I see an Oriole at a feeder. They are beautifull and I like their song.
