A female Orchard Oriole gathering nesting material - another from our holiday in Cape Cod last May. I rather like the effect of this, rather than cropping in on the bird but have left it for modification if anybody would like to try.
Settings: F/5.6 1/1000sec -1EV ISO200 AV@700mm tripod
Please view large if you have a moment

Many thanks for your C&Cs on my last upload - very much appreciated.

Wonderful shot Sylvia. The bright colour of the bird contrasts so well with the green of the perch. The sky is just about perfect.

I'm glad you haven't cropped this, Sylvia, you would have lost some of the impact, I believe. A super capture, wonderful contrast of the beautiful bird against the green of the foliage. Carol
