Re: Big and little critters, and other stuff with the 100-300 mm

The fox and the woodpecker are nice catches.

For BIFs, you'll probably want to use a center point group and C-AF rather than S-AF. Don't use C-AF + Tracking because focus will jump to the trees (strong vertical). There is an option that keeps focus on the subject lock rather than jumping. You might want to look at that.

You want to get closer. Birds -- even the bigger ones -- are just really small.

Best to have them front lit if that's possible.

Have fun. You'll get the hang of it.
