Hi Eric!
I'm not sorry for the Fox photo - any way that Fox doesn't look like a "photo star":).
I'm really sorry for the Black Bears - how it come to have the focus point on the grass in front of the bears? What focus configuration did you use (I believe Alan will translate your answer to Nikon language, I have never used Canon:cautious:). Did you engage all available focus points?! If so, all cameras are tending to focus on the closest object (at least when they acquire the first focus point - if you are shooting continuous/servo in Canon language?). This could be override if there is significantly more contrast object behind of the closest one, or if the closest object is so small (non of this apply to your photo!). I exclude the specific acquisition of the first focus point from some cameras (like "car auto-focus" for example:)). Some differences between the brands appear later -during the tracking...

I'm not sure what I did wrong with the focus on the bears, it's a very old photo I found the other day...

This red squirrel jumped into my field of view while I was watching a woodpecker up in the trees.
It was as fast and vivid as every squirrel. But at home I noticed his big handicap.

Nice shot, Nemorino. I always appreciate these serendipitous captures! Thanks for sharing.

Injured squirrel probably due to a fight with others.
One is bleeding, one lost a foot - a squirrel's life seems not to be easy in our local park.

I realized just lately that we have duck mussels in our local ponds. And quite big ones, almost 10 cm.
