Hello Biswarup,

Hope you are doing fine, brother. This is a wonderful shot, taken from a distance, it has all the merits of a good shot. I think I must pay you a visit and must also see this tree which harbours so many birds that you do not have to go anywhere else....smile.
Once again a good contribution to TN, fine fine shot, thanks a lot for sharing, take care,

warm regards,

Hello Biswarup,
I love Orioles and this is a real beauty that we don't have here in my area. We have Baltimore Orioles here in Ohio and they are one of my all time favorite birds to view.
You have done a great job of photographing this particular bird in an attractive relaxed pose. Gorgeous vivid yet natural colors and just the right amount of exposure.
Well done!!

Just a little focus has been lacking here, however it is a beautiful composition and great capture of this xanthornus oriole.
