AWESOME shots! Where did you spot it? Great job!

Thanks, It was down around one of my local spots but I had never spotted them, luckily I ran in to someone who knew where to look, I say luckily, because even when he pointed them out I still couldn't see them at first, they are really well camouflaged.

Thanks Jeff, it's all relevant of course, because I will never be able to get a fox in the snow where I am and I just love those photo's.

This thread has exploded with fine photographs. I hope it rubs off on me.

A question: how many of you use back button focusing? I just set mine up that way yesterday and I think it might work for me. It's too early to tell.... but I thought I'd ask for your opinions.

I would guess the majority of us are now using BBF. There are few who couldn't get to grips with it but I would never go back now.

A question: how many of you use back button focusing? I just set mine up that way yesterday and I think it might work for me. It's too early to tell.... but I thought I'd ask for your opinions.

I tried BBF a couple of months ago and got 95% out of focus pics. It was probably because I was letting go of the BB and then disturbing the focus of the lens -- but ALL of them in that particular shoot were OOF except for the last few when I changed my stance and I guess was holding the button long enough.

So that was scary and I have not gone back to BBF, but might try it again.

I'm thinking though that for some subjects like fast-moving small birds, that BBF will be too slow. Usually I aim and press the shutter down all the way practically in a single motion, and the bird still flies away half the time.
