KAP .. perhaps ask again. As noted, many of us have limited "air time" in summer.
If it was as digital dingbat stated then consider M mode. See here.
The image is missing, but is of a bald eagle. See here.
As photogenic as Lincoln (the 'iggle') is, exposures are difficult. So I just set the camera on (say) f7.1 in A mode, and take a picture of a neutral area (like grass in the same light) and see what the speed ended up as. (This area HAS to be in the same light as the subject!!)
THEN I set the camera to M mode and duplicate the speed and aperture in M. That ensures good exposures on the white .. if it is off a tad I can changed the speed or aperture as needed. This is the only way to do this as subjects with some white can throw the metering off. With the camera set in M mode this way, AS LONG AS THE LIGHT DOES NOT CHANGE
, I can take oodles of pictures and the exposures will be good no matter where the metering point is set in the frame....as the meter is "turned off it does not matter.
Maybe that was not the question...
