The real fun came in refining my setup. I'd sit inside, wait for the birds to feed and leave, then go out and pull the memory card and check the photos. My first setup I'd placed the tripod too far from the food and I decided that, unlike deer, orioles probably wouldn't mind a camera in their face as they fed. The second set of photos was better, but the camera was slightly too high. Now I'm monkeying with the perfect placement for capturing morning and evening light, which should highlight the plumage of these gorgeous birds.
