Who’d have thought that something as mundane as checking out my sister’s garden would spring such a pleasant surprise? Apart from lemons, eggplants, chillies, butterflies, and maybe a few ripe bogori, I didn’t expect to strike gold! No alchemy here. Just pure unblemished golden moment. One is never prepared for such moments, really! Although my point-and-shoot was clutched in my hands, the sight of this Black-hooded Golden Oriole on a small hibiscus bush so close to me made me fumble with the “On” button on my camera giving this beauty enough time to fly away to this tree a little distance away. Hence the blurry picture.I have seen other beautiful birds on this spot before but this oriole is definitely the most spectacular!
N.B. Bogori/Zizyphus jujuba is a fruit that ripens during this season.
