I was thrilled to capture this picture through the window this morning. Sometimes it is hard to see the orioles or any bird in the flowering trees through the view finder when the blossoms are profuse...I saw this young bird fly to a thin branch that was swaying back and forth which made it easier to detect her through the view finder to focus in. I just looked to find the moving branch:) ...I had just washed the smears off the window this morning where some of the birds like to peck on it and I am glad I did otherwise it would have been even more difficult to capture.

The focal length that I used 143 mm is equal to a 35 mm focal length of 800...

Best View in Light Box! Thank you!!!
