One of the side benefits of spending time at my friend's barn is that it brings me new photo opportunities. Not the coast or breathtaking vistas, but little surprises. She has a creek bed with lots of large trees. And she has a barn. Who loves a barn? Birds, of course! Yesterday I spotted two beautiful Bullock's Orioles flying around and fortunately had my camera in the truck. These are the best photos I could capture of the male because he kept himself pretty well hidden in the branches. I had to crop these down to identify his features and his name. Another friend of mine said that these birds are pretty elusive and it's a great opportunity to see a pair. Now I'm on a mission to capture better photos of him while he and his wife are still around. Isn't he absolutely gorgeous? More Spring color....you have to love it!
