[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A very shy bird, but also very beautiful. I had the unique opportunity (I think) to take pictures it in my garden. It is a male. It was the day after a night storm, with hail, the bird I think that was a bit scared and disoriented.

The brightly coloured bird is in a nice alert pose in its natural environment,with a good catch light in the eye.
Nice one.

Hello Cesar,
Perfect shot of this striking colored bird, which is very rare in my country and very shy, which makes it difficult for photographers. You have been lucky and made the best out of your opportunity. Bravo, great shot!
Kind regards

Hello Tomescu

To take this beautiful but normally quite shy golden oriole so close, with that 55mm lens, definitely counts as a unique opportunity. And you made the most of it with this nice and clean shot with good composition. Very nice indeed.

Hello Cezar,
I've only seen this bird a few times from a great distance. This is great! So close! Excellent sharpness, details and splendid colours. Pose and composition are fantastic.

Hello Tom
Fantastic capture of this wonderful bird.Great pose and composition,wonderful colours and great sharpness.Thank You.
Have a nice day!
Best regards

Hallo Tom
This is a great image. The vivid colours of this bird stands out so well on the screen and displays beautifully against the green backdrop.
It was very interesting to read that it is actually a shy bird, as one would think that a colourful one like this would want everybody and everything to see it. I like the composition and close point of view. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Salut Cezar,
Ce pasare frumoasa. Penajul este superb.
Felicitari pentru captura.
P.S.- Bun vinul lui Mugur.
Cele bune,

Hello Cezar.

Thank you for that picture of this wonderfull Oriolus oriolus, standing on a branch. Very interesting publication of a small bird, not so frequent in our countries and quite difficult to come near.

The composition is excellent with the bird standing on an ascending branch, looking around him.

The point of view attractive and shows us all the details of the bird. I particularly appreciate his position on the branch and his posture,

The sharpness is good and it is posible to well appreciate all the details of the bird.

The depth of field is properly managed, with an excellent background Very good bokeh.

The colors are properly restituted.

The contrast is correct and you have well managed the contrast between the black of the wings and the yellow of the rest of the body.

Congratulation for this is photo.

Thank you for the sharing. See you soon on trek nature for other pictures.



Very good presentation of this grest and shy bird!
And you must have been close with that 18-55!!
