CommentIt's nice when the subject looks into the camera. This image is a few years old, but it was a memorable encounter for me. It's a young eagle. It was about 7am and we hadn't been out long. The Australian light can be challenging, and I now wish I had used a higher ISO. I was using ISO640 at f5.6 in aperture priority but many shots were blurred because of slowish shutter speeds. Lesson learned.
