CommentBranch in foreground. Poor light, close to dusk, cloudy and shooting in direction of setting sun.
I saw it perched and locked on to it with Focus Tracking expand flexible spot. I held down half depressed until it flew when I started with M frames per second burst. Whilst perched and prior to flight I could only focus and lock onto its tail. I used Lightroom in Post for highlights shadows noise clarity 14 and texture 14. Handheld with all 3 settings in manual.
