Best Of The Worst: Focus F#ck Ups

Challenge #3 in the The Human Photographer series. Hosted by Stormcastle, TheAnonymousGhost.
Challenge has finished
READ CAREFULLY: This challenge is for those pics of yours that are nearly 100% great - except the focus isn't where you wanted it to be - and we've all had that happen when we're too lazy to use manual focusing. Depth of field errors are also welcomed in this challenge as most of us have had that go wrong, too.

Saw the seagulls start to fly up and immediately started snapping away. Autofocus took control, and i tried to override with manual focus as soon as it started focusing on the wrong birds, but the camera persisted =p
