Please send one of these Orioles down here! This is an absolutely beautiful picture of the beautiful bird. Colors are splendid and the details are razor sharp. Superb face and plummage. A wonderful pose and a beautiful setting. Wonderful composition in your very special style. I love it!

This Hooded Oriole is lovely. The bird is sharp, the natural setting blurred together (DOF) helps me realize that the colors are very similar to the bird itself. The pose is pretty typical, but the colors of the Oriole's beak really get my attention. What an unusual array of colors! The plumage is also eye-catching, but the beak is more so. (To me) Good POV and DOF. The composition enhances the subject - thank you for sharing.

A very nice natural image of this one Luis. The colours are so soft...in earth tones or natural pastels if you will...and the bird looks so much more alive among the surrounding brush and bush.....You still seem to have that knack...or perhaps the eye for some things and yet you also appear to be getting a tad if not more quality....very nicely presented!
Very nice image as always my Friend! Awesome composition, great colors and a nice pose make for a great shot Luis. Thanks for sharing this awesome shot.

Hello Luis, very good detail seen on this Hooded Oriole. This is a new bird for me so thanks for the introduction here. You've caught him well on this branch and positioned him well in your crop. Colour seen on the bird is very good, with good use of your depth of field to tone down the background.

I have seen Orioles, but n'ver photographed them And i think they are much brighter around here in plumage as compared to these hooded orioles. I like this pose as if it is playing hide-and-seek with you.The details on the beak show an interesting structure...i love the muted environmnet except for the branches on the left.
Good contrasta dn DoF and contrats.
very well done.
TFS & Cheers
