Worth The Trouble
As often happens, I didn't do a very good job of sticking the orange onto the top of the Shepherd's hook. After the mean old thrasher got its share, the fruit flipped backwards making the birds work quite hard for their sweet treat. This is a series of a female Hooded oriole (L to R, L to R) showing her determination. Her success can be noted in the final shot: a piece of orange stuck firmly on her tongue.
I'm still getting around to looking at all of the MM photographs. I think I've gone through about half. Sorry I can't make comments on each journal; however, let me know after a few hours (it's 8 pm here: UTC -8) if you haven't received a star.
