For these types of shots, you have to switch to manual focus.

You have gotten better. The exposure is correct (to my eyes on this monitor), along with depth of field (F stop)for this shot. Nice and sharp.
I'm happy to see your improvement over the course of the last year. Keep it up. Credit where credit is due.
Hope you are well...

I'm thankful that folks see my point , sometimes. I walk in the woods a lot. Here lately really a lot. The abundance is not there anymore and I know why. People regulate the proliferation of every species on this planet, except the most dangerous of all, the Human species. Dinosaurs ruled the planet for nearly 200 million years. We have been here a small fraction of that and look at the damage. You can't go anywhere without running into ignorance, or some stupid buffoon playing his music as loud as he can at a gas pump. Home invasions, drugs, crime , corruption and blatant disregard for anything except themselves and their very small bubble. Animals destroyed with impunity to the point of extinction. But let one human die, or be killed and it's a huge deal..doesn't really make sense to me.

Thank you.
The not very photogenic environment is the natural habitat and not a bird feeder with the bird hanging off the cage , which seems to get praise. Along with upside down geese. And a quarry of other ridiculous images that are praised as , " artistic." It does apply to this bird. And every other bird. What you take out of greed and never give back effects a delicate balance. People are good at doing that. That is why there are 7.5 billion of us and less than 2500 Bengal Tigers, worldwide. 10,000 - 25,000 blue whales. It wouldn't hurt my feelings to see 3/4 or more of the human species eradicated. Even if I were one of them. Thank you for your musings....and happy new year.
I give you this to consolidate, then separate the imaginary world where wildlife poses for you on the kitchen table with a backdrop, which , like a bad toupee, couldn't look less natural if it had a chin strap.

As I go through this, I see the need for less humans. They take from this world and rarely, if ever, give anything back.
Is this the next extinct species? When the rivers are polluted, the trees are cut for farmland, so we can eat ; how many humans are enough humans?


I wonder where he is now because I know I'll never see him again.

I use to shoot with a Pentax K5. I switched over to the Olympus E-M1X micro 4/3's around April of 2020.
Using an M.Zuiko 40-150mm pro lens with an Olympus MC14.........1.4x teleconverter.. 35mm conversion with this setup is , 420mm so I have to get pretty close.

My K5 was a great camera. I had it for many years. The E-M1X is light years ahead of it though. Some of the misgivings of micro 4/3's, in this case are completely false.
To answer your question , experience in all settings, lighting, wildlife, landscape, macro and just getting out there and doing it a lot. And luck. Being at the right place at the right time, having the right light and positioning yourself for it and always being ready for what might present itself.
Believe me, it doesn't always work out. And wildlife isn't easy. I get a lot more bad images than good ones. But every now and then..........

I have been scouting the woods nearly daily for the last week in all types of weather and all kinds of natural light. I'm catching most of these birds in the wild in their natural habitat, and it's hard.
Sometimes I don't see anything, or most of the time can't get the shot. It's a challenge every time.
