Whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are good. Philippians 4:8

This female Orchard Oriole came a few days later than her mate on May 20, 2011 ... We had never seen this species of wild bird before last year or since..They were migratory birds just passing through and needless to say it was thrilling to see them...I posted a cropped version of this picture last year...This is the untouched original from my camera without cropping or photo shop editing..

She was standing on an Olive tree branch by our window when I shot this image. There was an atmospheric haze in the air, which produced a soft yellowish hue to the background that especially shows up the way it looked on this unedited photo.

Thank you very much for the Spotlight Page Looney...Very appreciated!

    Thank you for your comments...I was so hoping we would see the Orchard Orioles again this year but sometimes they pass through and never return again...such as the Scarlet Tanager
    who came for 5 minutes and left when a Cat bird chased him off the feeder....The beautiful
    Indigo Bunting didn't show up this year either...It pays to take pictures when we have the
    chance because we may not have that same opportunity again....
