Cute! I wonder if it has pups or perhaps is hungry?

OK, I admit I have a special affection for Orangutans: they are really amazing creatures. They manage to look as if they are wise, and considering great matters...

A few pictures taken this week. Two images are of the April Supermoon rising over Sydney and a couple of shots showing birds in my local park. The low noise at ISO 6400 is marvelous when dealing with wildlife at the end of a long lens with a CPL filter plus an Extender. I've been using the EF 100-400mmL II lens with the EF 2x III Extender on it quite a bit lately while testing for limitations - At the request of several other photographers. At 560mm this combination has been agreeable. These were all shot in JPEG.

Anyone else having problems with the spot focus being too large an area on the R6? I'm accustomed to using spot focus on the 7DII to grab focus on a small bird between branches in a tree. That is not working very well on the R6. At first I just thought it was missing focus which is not uncommon in such a situation. But it has been happening regularly and I have come to the conclusion that the R6 uses a wider area for spot focus. I really see little difference between spot and single point. Sometimes I get lucky as in this image.

Considering it's only 7 weeks from our shortest day over here, the days are still fairly warm (about 20DegC), and with no humidity it's great to go out and visit the animals with clear conditions.
In this case a Golden Top Tamarin

Yes, it’s too big. Same on the R5.

Have you tried the animal priority auto focus available. I'm amazed how it can focus on birds in heavy brush.

Yes, I have tried it and also have eye detect on as well. I have a second button to switch to between single point and this setting. But often with small birds the auto-focus jumps around and grabs something else.

Try it in situations like this without eye detect on. Just animal . Seems to help. YMMV
