A cold Robin enjoying the morning sun
Nicely shot, but he's not quite sharp. I had the same problem as this, when I gave it a go at a hide in a local park.
The problem is the camera's autofocus. If 2 of the focus points can attain focus, the camera is set to choose the nearer of the 2. I suspect yours locked on a branch & the robin, but decided on the branch. Just keep an eye on which focus point is being selected (they usually glow or change colour), or manually select the focus point yourself. Alternatively, go manual.
A lovely image nontheless, of a very fat looking robin. Looks like he's all set for the lean times in winter.
nice shot my favourite bird
An excellent capture
> Just keep an eye on which focus point is being selected
More effective is to select a single autofocus point. That way, you know exactly what the camera's trying to lock onto. Whether it achieves it or not is a different matter but, at least you're setting the goals.
A wonderful capture
