I've been dreaming about shooting an Oriole for a few years. It's the MOST shy bird of all I've ever encountered. You get lucky when you just see it, let alone get close enough to shoot.
Yesterday was a great day for me as I got this opportunity TWICE! :smile:
The lighting was bad on #1 and the bird was too far on #2 but I'm still happy with the results! :smile:

Nikon D200 + AF-S 300/4 + TC14E

These looks pretty good to me Igor. I have a couple of Baltimore Oriole shots, but none of this variety. Very nicely done. :smile:

I'd love to reply each post individually, but in a few minutes I'm off to another wildlife shooting trip (deep Ukrainian mid-country woods- WOW! :Waldo: :eek: ), wish me luck! :smile:

Very nice. I was fishing in the Shenadoah valley on Friday and saw two Orioles. It was the first time I have ever seen them in the wild. And of course I had my fishing pole and no camera:eek:
