Baltimore Oriole's...Mom, Dad and the little Squirt!

  1. Hi All, Shot these today and I was lucky to photograph the little one popping out of the nest high above. The female shot below if you look carefully you can see the nest in the background.

    Thanks for looking!

    All shot with the D70 and 70-200mm VR

    Nice series Anthony. You might try a little fill flash on the nest shot, just to bring the baby out a little more.

    WOW long time no see this birdie. I remember those pouch nests now that you posted this.

    When I was a little girl in Long Island NY..:>)))

    Sure miss some of the nature up north.

    Great images.
    Thank you for sharing.
  4. Hi Flew! I was afraid to use the fill flash on the little one. I didn't want to startle or maybe blind it. Is it safe to do tomorrow when I visit the nest?

    Thanks, Anthony

    Should be, but I wouldn't get too close.
