He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler... Psalms 91: 4

I shot this picture a few days ago and am hoping this beautiful bird will return..It just made a short stop as it was passing through ... We see more of the Baltimore Orioles than we do of the Orchard Orioles...I am so loving spring and seeing these wonderful migrating birds are a lift to the spirits...

    You take such spectacular photos of your birds, Andrea!! This one is very beautiful. I love the way you always seem to get just the perfect composition of the birds too. The look in this one's eye is very sharp and intense. Very well done photograph!!!
