Fuzzy Deer

A group of deer passed through the woods right beside our place yesterday. "She Who Must Not Be Named" grabbed a camera and tried to get a shot and in the process learned a basic lesson about photography. When you set the camera on auto-focus the mechanism will focus on the closest object near the center of the image and unless you are using a deep-focus lens everything else will be fuzzy.

Here's what "She" got.

The critters are hard to see to begin with and when they are fuzzy damn near impossible. In case you missed it, I cropped the section where a deer can be seen and ramped up the contrast.
