Len’s Pic of the Week: Oriole

I’m not sure why, but there seems to be more orioles around this year than what I’m used to seeing in Door County and they are staying longer than usual, which is fine with me. They can stick around as long as they please. I like this image because it shows the oriole against the sky like a plane waiting to take off. I like to show a hint of the environment when photographing nature and the pine tree he’s perched on adds that, plus leads your eye up toward the subject, the oriole. And I love how shooting up from a slightly lower angle helps to make this bird look proud and majestic as if to say, “Yeah, I’m cool.”
