He that hath a merry heart hath a continual feast...Proverbs 15: 15

The Northern Oriole Adult was feeding his youngster jelly when I caught this image through the window These birds are super fast...I shot eight pictures of the sequence but this was the only one that showed the jelly best before it entered the beak. Jelly is a sticky situation for sure and even harder to show it before the beak snaps it up. The little one was fluttering its wings in appreciation of receiving this sweet gift. The jelly dish is reflecting a deeper orange on the adult male oriole as he is leaning over the dish..
