This chickadee was taken with matrix (evaluative) metering, which helped tone down the background and slightly darkened the bird, surprising it worked out nicely. Another example in a long list of “it’s worth trying opportunities”. Normally in these conditions I would shoot with spot metering, resulting in a very bright background requiring some work.
