There are times when no amount of photographic skill makes up for being at the right place at the right time. This afternoon I was pulling into Stoneybrook West after birding at Circle B, and I saw a White Ibis on the sidewalk, eating a nice big frog. Luckily there was no one behind me, so I pulled the camera out, rolled down the window, and shot and shot.
I’m starting to be better at changing auto-focus settings by touch. I started out with spot autofocus, which wasn’t working well combined with hand-holding the lens (it was kind of going all over the place!) So I switched to center zone autofocus on my 7D and all the pictures after that were in perfect focus.
