I saw this guy on a power line just as I was pulling into my driveway. I started to stop and try and get a shot of it, but I figured he'd just fly away. I got all the way into my drive and looked back and he was still there, so I figured I'd give it a try. I walked near and took a few shots, but realized I didn't have it set to the right metering mode so it came out very dark. I switched to the right one and it was still pretty dark, so as I was walking closer I upped the exposure value to +1 and got right up under him and was able to get one shot before he flew away. I guess I need more practice on wildlife because I clearly wasn't ready, and had to think too much about my settings. I also could use a good telephoto lens. I guess that's why I like landscapes and buildings. They don't fly away before you get a good shot.
