Thanks mate. I have been chasing these shots for a while and actually just got lucky with these ones as i was leaving at the time and saw this fella. Shot these out of the car window and the hare was obliging enough for me to be able to zoom in to achieve manual focus.Wow! Great work with the manual focus. These images are really interesting, I couldn’t even see the hare at first and thought it was just a photo of dry grass
Centre point failed as well. Even when the eye was visible. But I am not suggesting it is a flaw of the system. it is just about as difficult a situation as one could come up against. But the ability to zoom in to 10x magnification while manual focusing helpedIt would take a higher form of artificial intelligence to sort those out. Did using just the centre point fail? I have just posted a couple of shots in the Bird Portrait thread illustrating how the eyeAF can find the head of tiny distant birds.
