Although this one is under exposed this is the best I was able to get with the RAW file by raising the light level with the software. Unfortunately those singing do not always give you the time to set everything correctly with your camera. Sometime you just have to press the shutter and hope for the best. This one came very close to me (less than 10 feet) but unfortunately right into the sun.
On the second photo the bird was not in the line of the sun but a little bit farther.
