Actually Ted, more like about 6 feet away while she was on her handler's arm. the Harris Hawk is not native to this area. They live in the Southwest. You probably saw them flying around when you were living in Arizona. They like to hunt in groups of two or three. Handsome birds.

Hi Lordje: this was shot under the A mode. I tend to use the Aperture mode mostly, sometimes the S mode. Mostly use ISO up to 800, occasionally go to 1600 when necessary. In the menus, I usually have Gradation set to auto or normal, and picture mode to either Vivid or Normal; the Noise Filter set to Low; AE bracket at 0.3EV. I'm sure that everybody on this forum has their own preferences which will differ from mine.

You will develop your own preferences as you experiment and find your preferred settings based on the type of subjects that you usually photograph.

Thank you for this excellent info Steve.
Did some further reading today beacause I still find new button combinations on my E-3 it seems . It's all logical if you think afterwards.
