I was out at a local wildlife refuge today and saw a flock of geese coming toward me.

They were pretty close to me and passed right in front of me, over the road. I swung up my D4 with the Nikon 300mm f/4 as they approached. They were moving so fast, that I tried to get the center focus "0" on anyone of them.

Well, I was disappointed that none of those shots turned out in focus. Not even close. All the geese were blurred.

So what happened? I noticed that the camera was on 51 and not 11. The focus dot was dead center, so it did not move. A3 Focus with tracking was 3 Normal.

Am I missing anything?

Thanks.
