First, I took an old stump and put it in our yard, placing it so that the background was a nice area of green grass. I dug up a patch of grass and placed it on the stump. In spring, Orioles love grape jelly and oranges. I put a cup of jelly and an orange half on the stump but just out of view (so I thought). Orioles started coming to the food right away and I started snapping photos. After looking at them in my viewfinder, I realized there was a lot of distracting grass in front of the bird.
