PPPPPPP pick up a penguin

By pluckyfilly
again with the Leica a minor grumble you cant change your point of focus SO with a bird for instance you either take a long shot trying to get the eye or you zoom into whatever you can getSad for wildlife its not recommended but having said this - its still good for landscape and macroWink

Nicely done Ann, surely you can get your point of focus, depress the shutter button half way to get focus lock then re-compose and shoot the image.
