For that nest shot.....that is one type shot I would use MF.
Now since you see you can get good photos is the time to move to Program mode if you arre on that Red A thing and try a few of the settings I recommended ...my settings may not work for you but you will find some that will work great for you and I really doubt those Multi-point focusing things will be it.
As for posting the photos with the exif I do not think that site will let you do that...but another thing that strips exif is the "Save for web" option use save as instead.
For a program that lets you copy and paste the exif try Irfanview...it makes that simple as it has a copy to clipboard button. Besides if you get all the plugins it is a pretty good photoeditor.
