Vines and Shallow Depth of Field

I took several shots of this vine as it reaches over from a nearby fence and grabs hold of the coax cable on the house. It is a very thin vine, making it difficult to auto focus. One of the problems with shooting vines with a shallow depth of field is that they meander in and out of focus. 

This photo was the only one that I found pleasing enough to post. The camera's display is not that great at showing how good such a little vine photographed. So, now I know that it's best to close down the aperture a bit so that more of the vine stays in focus.
