Now where's that Caterpillar by natureguy Now where's that Caterpillar by natureguy
A male Orchard Oriole hunting for Caterpillars in the weed patch I was watching today. It was neat watching them so close. Being totally camouflaged up,He paid no attention to me, but would look my way when the shutter went off, for a second or two.
He was a tough target though, always hunting in the brushy part of the weed patch. So close but not too many picture opportunities!

Hi Myriadelle, :wave: Thank you!
Yeah they pretty much cleaned up all the Caterpillars from this patch of weeds and brush. Now I have to find where they will be feeding next.
