Re: Bird in flight with D90

Thank you for the clarification.  I was merely trying to explain how my camera was set not trying to defend myself as you have said.  It is true that I like to show my bird on an unobstructed background and the overcast sky seemed to please me quite a bit.  I will shoot the sky only if it was interesting but just a blue sky, I often stay away from it.  Here is how my camera was set, Aperture priority at F5, AF-C, burst mode, Auto AE, ISO 200, matric metering, 1/3 EV, and fine tune exposure set at +3/6 (I believe this could be the problem).

If you gentlemen could give me better tips on what the best setting would be for my next challenge, I would appreciate it since we are going back to the birds this Thursday.  Have no choice, it's another field trip before they close down for the summer.

Thank you all in advance.  It has been a good lesson to learn.
