Turkey Vulture, 5/13/14/

A flock of Turkey Buzzards frequent the rooftop of my neighbor. They seem to like the perch at the chimney spout on the roof. Whenever, I spot them at their favorite spot, I grab my camera and run out for a shot. My challenge is to get close to them from my side of the fence and then to catch them mid flight, so I have my camera set to continuous burst mode. Also, I have to make sure that I set my exposure compensation up by 1.2 or so, otherwise, I miss the details in the shadows. The background is invariably the sky and the contrast appears to be a big problem. Shooting at lower ISOs is also a big issue because the shots need multiple edits and the noise level needs to be way low.
