Nice pictures, Jack.
Thanks guys. My first thought was to contact Wildlife but capturing this guy would not be simple and so I more or less dismissed the thought. He/she really can't put weight on it but it certainly doesn't hinder feeding and there are no predators or even dogs here, so ??

A few of the local deer. A light snow was falling and very dark out for the time of day.... I had to go up to ISO2000 to get 1/15 of a second of exposure, so I am amazed that the shots are not a blurry mess

Hi Don.
Very nice shots!
Is there a reason you stuck to such a low ISO and also low shutter speed that left you surprised to get clean shots, I know the snow streaks look cool! ;) Is it because you don’t use ISO’s higher than 2000 out of principle or was it specifically to get the snow blur?

Cheers, Graham.

You guessed it..... slow shutter speed for snow streaks.

I was shooting out a car window, with the motor off to avoid vibrations and the lens wedged in place against the window.
