I am so happy! My favorite bird. I saw them in Ohio as a child but never after age 7 in 1952....besides an occasional glance here and there in a magazine...this is my first real look from a professional. How lucky for you! Your best ever!
You are so right - this is your best yet! I think there will be many many more best yets for you. I have never seen a Baltimore Oriole "in real life" but you are showing me just how beautiful he is. Excellent details and wonderful colors of the entire bird. The wings are magnificent. Background and composition are lovely. I'm so proud for you - you should be very happy. Congratulations, friend.

A beautiful bird well caught in flight. This capture of a Baltimore Golden Oriole is sharp, taken from a fine POV with fine timing and well composed against a superb OOF late spring BG of blue sky and emerging leaves.
Thanks for sharing this,

Hi Asbed. Yes this is a very good inflight picture of the Baltimore Oriole . Your timing has the wings wide open with ood detail .and the golden yellow of the feathers. All with good notes well done TFs.
You are right, This is your best in flight, to date!

The wings spread and tail feathers balancing the flight of this gorgeous Oriole are captured in stunning detail, the colours are perfect as is the sharpness.
Excellent Camera Work and I still dont have a clue how you achieved this with your camera!!
All the Best

Hi, dear Asbed.
Only half an hour I have come back for a shot business trip and in a few minutes I got to University on lecture. And I was very glad to see your link and to watch your amazing in-flight shot. It is wonderful in every aspect. First of all it is fine timing and superb sharpness of the bird image. Exposure of the shot and reproduction of the bird's colouration are spot on too. Even compose of the shot is great desptire the fact that you have pictured the bird in fast flight. Bravo. My kind regards.

La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs de cet oriole de baltimore en vol. Les branches cadrent bien l'oiseau. L'image est claire et nette. La qualité de la lumière rehausse les couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.
