If you could slow down an action that usually zooms by, or speed up an event that normally drags on, which would you choose, and why?

I should like a SLOW setting on my camera that would slow down wildlife, giving me more time to gather my wits and my camera, get focused, compose and shoot before the critters disappear.
These placid posers stood still for me. In fact, they stayed so still for so long, I had finally had to excuse myself.
These are Shiras moose; a cow and calf. Shiras are the smallest subspecies in North America, weighing only about 500 to 750 pounds when mature.
I’d never seen western tanagers before yesterday. At least, I think that’s what these are. The bright red male stayed in the shadows. If I could’ve slowed him down, I’d have gotten a better shot than this.
The female didn’t mind posing a minute.
If I’d had that special setting on my camera, you’d see a shot of the snowshoe hare that was on the road, wrestling with this barred owl. When we came around the corner, the owl lost focus, the hare escaped and disappeared into the woods.
The owl perched in a tree and glared at me for spoiling his supper.
Yikes! Don’t look at me like that! I’m leaving!
And now, a cheesy Daily Prompt poem.
Speed time up
in dentists’ chairs,
Slow it down
for love affairs.
Speed it up
Slow it at
