    Something not mentioned is all lenses (even macro) have a minimum focus distance. You don't specify the lens, but for example the Canon EF-S 60 mm, has a minimum focus distance of 7.87". If any part of the subject is less than that and you have it on spot AF it won't focus, but if you have it on Multi-point, it will automatically pick another point,

    Yes , I do have the canon 60mm. I was trying to get as close as I could and didn't realize I had it on multi. Makes sense that it did pick up another point. I didn't know that could happen. Makes sense why that branch was sharp.
