    Nice shots overall.

    You should however be paying attention to the exposure as the last 3 shots are close to being overexposed and the hightlights are distracting.

    Next time try to obtain a correct exposure against something neutral like the road and lock it before taking the shot. Use the star button for that. It will lock the exposure for a short while allowing you time to focus and compose.

    If you will be shooting in mostly the same light then remember those settings, switch to Manual and dial in those settings until the light and its direction changes.

    It takes a while getting into the habit but keep at it.

    I agree with Bobo, i would also add that you need to be careful with your focus point and make sure that the animals eye is in focus

    Thanks guys, as always helpful tips, I will start experimenting with the exposure technique mentioned,have never really tried that before, more learning for me,. I was a bit rushed today as we didn't have a lot of time there and must admit I did struggle with the changes in light, something I need to come to grips with, thanks again
