Finally, I was able to take a picture of the golden Oriole. This is one of the birds I really have a hate - love story with. Because now in Spring I was able to hear it's voice very often but even though it has a very yellow color it is very hard to spot because most of the time it is hiding very well, and it is always sitting very high in the trees but still on a place where there is a lot of branches and leaves that could be used as a hiding place. To better spot the bird on the picture, I drew a small red circle with photoshop. I hope some day I will get a much better picture of it, but this is at least a first step.

When you here this bird on several photography trips and never actually see it even when I try to search it for several minutes or even hours I nearly get crazy. Because this is something I cannot imagine. Hearing it singing the whole time but never being able to spot it. At least now I have a picture of It. Even though it is a cropped image and the bird is hiding behind a branch, I am a bit proud of myself to finally have it in my collection :-) The next step is to get a better image where it is not hiding so well.
