One of the biggest disadvantages of photographing on automatic settings is, that the function “choice of focus point” is not available. On wildlife photography courses, team building photographic safaris and photographic safaris working with the focus points is essential and practiced a lot. Imagine a lion lying in the grass. The automatic setting will focus on the grass and not on the face of the lion. To get it right you need to choose the focus point yourself and set it on the face of the lion. It needs also some practicing to get used to choose the focus points quickly, but once you got the routine, you will see your photography improving.
