Re: Nice hair!

It's certainly challenging with subjects that don't stay long in one place, the more so when a breeze is moving the plants around, so well done capturing those images.

Manual focus would be futile with the changing focus distance and shallow DOF.

I used autofocus for over a decade and never really got on with manual focus on the few occasions when I tried it. But then I moved to a manual focus only setup. To my surprise it has turned out that manual focus is giving me better focusing success than I got with autofocus, including some quite small subjects (2mm or so long) as they are moving around or what they are on is moving in the breeze, or sometimes both. I think it is focus peaking that is making the difference.
