Oriole completes his feeding job

When the Bullock's Oriole finished feeding the nestlings yesterday, he stood back up on the nest and looked around briefly so I got this pic. All but a tidbit of bug is gone from his beak so he managed this time to feed the nestlings (you may have to double-click on the pic to enlarge it in order to see the little bit of bug that is still in his beak).

Just a note about all the photos I took of this oriole--I use a 12X digital camera which is the equivalent of about 430 mm on a 35 mm camera. Plus I crop my photos to enlarge them further. So I am able to get these photos standing far enough from the nest so as not to be intrusive. This is very important when taking photos of nesting birds in order to not interfere with successful nesting.
