    Not sure what camera you are shooting, but on most Nikons you can over-ride the auto-focus by holding down the focus button (I use back button focus) and with your pinkie finger, use the manual focus ring. This technique enables you to get past the foreground material and focus solely on the subject. I noticed on the Robin shot, one of the twigs was far more prominent than the feathers. Closing down a stop or two for more depth of field will also help if you can spare for the lighting adjustment without introducing too much noise.

    Thanks BD. I have a Canon and will have to check into that feature. Would be very useful.

    Nice shots. There's been a Peregrine falcon flying around work lately, but he always seems to time his arrival when I don't have my camera handy. All I've gotten so far is his back side as he was flying away.

    I have so many backsides, I thought about shooting ads for Levis!
