Taken handheld in a car. In response to my TN friends, I was really in a hurry and to be honest this was the one and only shot of this oriole.
This bird perch for a few seconds only. furthermore I seldom see oriole allows isolated shot, they always stay among the leaves. TQ for the corncern. appreciated.

The Black-naped Oriole (Oriolus chinensis) is a bird of the oriole family and is found in many parts of Asia. There are several distinctive populations within wide distribution range of the species and in the past the Slender-billed Oriole (Oriolus tenuirostris) was included as a subspecies. Unlike the Golden Oriole which only has a short and narrow eye-stripe, the Black-naped Oriole has the stripe broadening and joining at the back of the neck. Males and females are very similar although the wing lining of the female is more greenish. The bill is pink and is stouter than in the Golden Oriole.

Hello Foozi,
A great hurried up shot, and one I'm sure you wont forget for a long time. There are some birds that seem to never leave the thick foliage, and on that rare occasion when they do, you usually try to take a quick shot.
You managed to capture a wonderful image with beautiful bright colors in this instance. Congratulations!!

Hello Foozi,
This is really a beauty....What I like most are the fantastic colors of this bird. Impossible to live with this colors of any bird in my region...I mean with no camouflage.... As usual a perfect focus and WB. Superb.....Another masterpiece from close range with excellent clarity and fantastic sharp details.
Thanks for sharing!

Salam Foozi,
Very good photo of this Bird ..
Splendid contrasting and clear colours in a very good composition.
Best wishes,

Beautiful bird and beautiful photo Foozi! Very good composition, fantastic BG, wonderful colours and good sharpness.

Hi Foozi,
Composition, DoF, colors are great, but the bird's pose isn't photogenic enough, no eye contact with the model at all. A pity, it might be a good photo with a decent pose and with switching the date burner off on the camera.
Best regards, László

Hi Foozi,
Beautiful capture.
