Home construction is brought to new heights.

“I was watching the orioles searching for nesting materials and noticed one particular area of interest for them,” Joe Syfko says. “This allowed me an opportunity to get close but not interfere with their activities.”

“I love the colors of this shy bird—never realized they were so beautiful,” the Minnetonka resident says.

For those interested in photographing wildlife, Syfko recommends going out in the morning to take advantage of the early light and notes that a bit of patience can also go a long way in securing the best image.
