I was fortunate to see many Baltimore Orioles this May, certainly a beautiful species, in my opinion. As a general observation, they are often high up in the forest canopy feeding, so I was pleased when this one came down lower, for some images.

Excellent image and opportunity. You are right about it, I always see them in the top of the trees singing.

Getting them at eye level can be really tricky, I like the eye contact and alert pose, Paul.
