If I could shoot this again...

.What follows is a c***py snapshot, shot in a screaming hurry (redtail #1 had just left the tree when I shot #2). In the rush, I missed the camera was on "P", not "Auto". At least I had a tree I could use as a quick and dirty support for working at 600 mm. There is an out of focus branch, on my "monopod" tree, in the lower right.

Redtail Hawk

Obviously the cloudy sky, brightened by looking almost due south near noon, made a hash of exposing the hawk. I played with tweaking a cropped version. That helped the hawk, of course, but basically blew out the sky.

If I could shoot this again, what M4 settings would at least limit the disaster?
