Re: Alki spring eagle

I was using Aperture priority with low ISO and max zoom to get a couple portrait shots and noticed the bird was fidgeting and perhaps set to take flight.  I pulled back on the zoom but did not have time to adjust ISO to get a quicker shutter speed before it leaped.  The last six shots of the flight sequence are all stamped with the same time including second so guess I was getting at least 6 fps.
