Cross posted in the 300 plus club, and K-3 images and the TC club and The Yardbirds thread.

My buddy Doug came in for a visit. He was camping in the park and dropped in. He was telling us about an oriole that has been hanging around his yard. I went through my long tail of woe about how when I first started shooting birds, I had some Orioles (when I lived further south. But, my lens was the Sigma 70-300 and I really sucked at handling the 300mm end of that lens. But in the 10 years we've been here, we never saw an Oriole. Well yesterday these guys turned up. Tess rushed to get the feeders out for them. Spring i slate and it's going to be up to our feeders to keep them alive for a while.

So I said to my buddy, I hope I get another chance to get an Oriole. And the very next day, voila. The universe is unfolding as it should.



Two male hummingbirds. Our female hasn't made it yet and we are worried.

So I was dithering about this morning when I look out the window an there's an Oriole on the hanger for the hummingbird feeders. My K-3 was on the kitchen table with the Tamron 300 2.8 and F 1.7x AG adapter on it, I had to shoot through the kitchen window, but what the hey.

Orioles drink from hummingbird feeders, who knew?



I managed few more shoots before he left. Hope he comes back.









Mean while, I got a few images of the regulars....




And my white crowned sparrows are finally back. All the other sparrows came long ago.

Another bee-fly, and two shots of the same jumping spider. Usual 100mm WR plus Raynox DCR-250 in the first shot, and Pentax-M 135mm F/3.5 plus Raynox MSN-202 for the much smaller jumping spider (second and third images, which are also focus stacks). First is reposted from Show Me Your Insects, other two here first, but should eventually make it into the Spiders thread...

Nice shots Carol. I just got back form trip to Yellowstone with my wife. Only saw a few and did not get close enough to get any shots. Even with my D FA 150-450 lens.
