Thanks. On the second photo I believe I used the "spot" focus since the bird kept moving around. I don't know if that makes a difference or not. I also posted a photo using the same lens on the "Abstracts" thread of a remote control car flipping over and to me, it all seems in focus. The only thing that really gives the motion away in the abstract photo is the rooster tail or the dirt spinning off one of the rear tires. If anything, I would have thought it would have been some camera setting I moved. Perhaps, I should get a diary and log everything for a while to help me figure out how I am shooting these photos.
