I remember When I went to the Zoo in the beginning that I forgot to check if my shutter speed was enough for using the long end of a lens esp on a cropcamera. (I still have that problem now an again), so check if you shutter speed it enough Ori.

^ Yes, too slow of a shutter speed should be the 1st thing to check.

Hmm, looking at some of the 'missed' pictures the shutter speeds are all around 1/15, 1/6, 1/4 or so .. so yes, slow. I was using a tripod, but my remote trigger was broken!

The main problem is that I was in a dark environment (reptile house) with little background light, humid temperatures (some got some lens fog), and not allowed to use a flash. So I was in AV mode with F5.6, Auto ISO (mostly it was choosing 1600 which I didn't really want) and hoping for the best! Maybe next time I should try TV mode and set a faster shutter speed.

Anyway .. I feel I might be diverting this thread OT, I might start a new one about the technicalities of my newbie mistakes :D

Thanks very much!

Shooting through glass can be challenging too - if you get the angle wrong...
