While I am not a fan of shooting on dull overcast days, there are exceptions. A dull overcast day can mean a natural softbox effect, which is great, or it can raise the problem of backlit subjects. I would have loved to have my flash with me, but there is no telling how a hawk might react to that. In any event, if you’re holding a camera and a hawk flies out of a tree in your direction I suggest shooting it regardless of background and other considerations and pray you can make something of it.
