Hooded Oriole

A quick perch to the top of the Red Hot Poker plant before he scaled down taking his sampling of sweet nectar. The background got darker and darker as the shadows from the fence casted its shadow in the later hours of the evening. Eventually it turns pure black and those images really pop. Still haven't got the Rufous Hummingbird there yet, so that means more visits. I'll post the Hummingbirds later :)
