comment What situations are best suited for spot metering?
In addition to shooting a lot of wildlife myself, I know and shoot with a good number of other wildlife photographers, and while many use manual and/or Aperture Priority, and a very few use Shutter Priority, I know of no-one that ever discusses using spot-metering in anything but very unusual circumstance.

Disagree strongly. Manual metering is the preferred metering. If you meter manually (as you suggest on green leaves or grass), your meter will not get fooled. As I stated, if your subject is largely black or white, your meter will get fooled and you would have to compensate your exposure. Why bother when you can easily use manual exposure? The only time manual metering is an issue, is when you have quickly changing lighting conditions - i.e. fast moving clouds.
