What a great photo this is, well done, B/W works really nice for birds too !!

Thanks! I do a lot of raptors in black and white as I love the way it shows the contrast of the feather patterns.

Had some issues with the AF of my 7D2. The AF would not work when I was too far away. It used to focus when the viewfinder was seriously fuzzy before, but it suddenly stopped doing that. I use BBF, and pressing it did nothing when the view was too out-of-focus. If I got the subject somewhat focused by turning the focus ring, then the AF would work normally. But that was inconvenient, and sometimes the moment would have passed.

It wasn't the lens; no focus range was set. Anyway, the behavior was the same with two different lenses.

At first I thought the camera was just having a bad day and all would be fine the next day. But the problem persisted.

Finally I went into the menu and did "Reset all camera settings". That fixed it! AF returned to normal behavior.

So my question is, what setting could have caused this? I want to know for next time so I don't do that setting again, and so I don't have to do a reset if the problem returns.

for first and second shot did you have it set to shoot priority instead of focus priority?
I forget the term... not 'shoot'... too lazy to look..

I missed a shot this morning with my 150-600 Siggy because it was at 600mm and it didn't want to focus. In that case I just zoon back a bit and AF then locks right in - but missed the shot in this case...

For AI Servo image priority, both were set for Equal priority (AFAIK).

Arch, there is a parameter under the focus tab="lens drive when AF impossible". You can turn it on or off. Could be the culprit.

I must regularly reset my 7DII, it's nothing new. I'm sure canon thought it a good joke to play. Some do not believe until it is their turn. This camera is prone to things setting it off and a reset is the answer. I'm not one to constantly change setting because I know it will bite me in the you know what!! I leave the AF set to case 5 and about never change it. I use spot 99% of the time and centre group on birds in flight. I had big trouble with the back wheel and now the top wheel jumps to what ever it chooses, forward back ward not at all. It chooses and I live with it. Cant even bring myself to think about sending it in. Not really sure what to do about it but take 4 times longer to adjust on the fly. There is no setting maladjustment that will put the 7DII into a tail spin except making a change the shouldn't affect the outcome one gets. If you spend enough time with this camera you get to see the side of it I don't like..
