    Question for you wev. Are you using highlight weighted metering, spot metering, or are you in full manual mode? I would have expected to see the +/- exposure compensation dialed in to counter the bright sky if you are in Aperture Priority or Manual with Auto-ISO. How are you able to capture so much detail in the feathers without blowing them out? Your work is amazing.

    Thank you, that's most kind. I use spot metering, full manual, auto iso (max 6400). I tried to shoot at the patch of bright white feathers, so it would meter that, rather than the darker grays. That's about as sophisticated as I ever get -- I'd be lost without my box of Dr. Wickett's Golden California Good Luck Powder.

    Thanks for the information, wev. I'll have to give spot metering a try one of these days. I switched to center-weighted metering quite a while ago, but when I shoot flying birds against a bright sky, I constantly have to over expose anywhere from +0.7 to +1.3 or higher. Overall center-weighted suits my general shooting preferences better than matrix metering except for the flying birds against the sky. I appreciate your help.
