Heading home with no pixels exposed, I was a little disappointed with the morning's outcome. Rounding a bend in the road I noticed a large bird perched in a roadside tree. With no traffic behind me I pulled the car to the side. Swinging the door I open braced the 600mm between the door and the body. Shooting against a gray sky can be problematic so I dialed in a +1 exposure compensation to keep the subject from being too heavily exposed.
Whether hunting with a weapon or a camera a few seconds can make the difference between returning home empty handed or with a smile on ones face. This morning I was all smiles!
