White-winged dove

White-winged dove

Zenaida asiatica

 

Taken with my new Canon S5 IS at ISO 80. I had to go into digital zoom to get this shot. The camera refused to focus on the bird until the bird took up most of the frame. It liked the leaves behind him better since they were higher contrast even though the bird took up more than 90% of the focus box. Five out of nine shots of this bird focused on the background. I thought this problem was supposed to be fixed.
