For a Hitchcock movie poster!
He was on the roof edge just above my head about 24 inches away, he had the sun shining on him and a very bright sky behind.
I tried several settings taking 5 shots before he flew away, this one was the only where he didn't move and for this I used -
Exposure Program: Manual
Exposure Time: 1 / 750
Flash: Flash did not fire, compulsory flash mode
