    This shot just annoys me. I had everything right, and then at the last second the autofocus shifted on me because a freaking FLY flew in between us... and an instant later before I could take the next shot the baby bonobo stopped doing what he was doing and sat back down.

    He was SO cute, I thought I would post the horrible out of focus picture anyway even though it is absolutely technically awful. My bad for not holding in the focus lock button on my 70-200 VR like I should have! At f/2.8 you have like ZERO room for error in focus.

    I just flat blew the shot.

    normally I don't like ape shots - but this one (at least very much in pose) is great!
    One destined for the stage if ever there was one!

    As you say a shame about the focus - one day cameras will be able to read minds - till then we just keep cursing them and ourselves ;)
