I find MF is much quicker than AF and have abandonned the latter. In these circumstances I think you have to preselect your magnification/working distance and move the camera to maintain focus.

thanks brian.
i never use auto-focus harold, and do as you describe,but this moth would dart from flower to flower,and only stay on one for a few seconds.the minute i moved in for focus,it would be gone to the next one.

That is correct behaviour for the group of moths! Always a challenge. I have yet to get a decent shot.

In the right locality there may be several of them on a limited supply of flowers. That is when your chances are the best. Last year I delayed such a chance when checking out a nearby restaurant for a potential meal and the moths were gone when I returned.
