A bald eagle resting in the trees in between fishing forays. Bald Eagles, especially in the shadows are difficult to shoot because of the extreme contrast. If you expose for the white head the rest of the scene is usually almost black. If you expose for the body, the head is completely blown out. I was able to get this perfect exposure using the Sony a6000 HDR feature which brackets 3 fast shots and produces a finished blend in the camera. The eagle was quite still or it wouldn't have worked.
Sony a6000, SEL55210 lens, ISO-100, f6.3, 1/60, HDR @ 5EV, hand held.
