Taking pictures from directly below a bird won't get you a great identification image, but the Oriole's bright coloring is lovely from any angle!
Even though bright orange clashes with the pink blossoms, the Baltimore Oriole is stunning.
The dawn's early light can be a bitch for photography. The yellow tint affects everything in its path. This is an image of both a male and a female oriole.
This seems to be two males.
I also got a pretty good picture of a grackle.
And when I arrived home one of my cardinals was there to meet me! This image is a little oversaturated, preumably because I was using the VIVID option in the canmera. This may not look like a great capture until you find out it was taken from 60 feet away, without a telephoto lens, and is cropped to 1/32nd of the original photo size.
