Thank you for contributing. I updated the camera to 4.4 and am using manual focus for most of the photos. I have not yet tried BIF. What focus settings would you suggest?

I took this photo yesterday of an Ibis visiting the pool in the garden. Aperture priority with manual and focus peaking. Exposure was auto, as was the ISO. It was taken in the middle of the day in bright sunlight.
