Chasing Deer at Dusk

Here in the Northern woods deer is a pretty common occurrence, one really has to be careful driving at dusk not to hit one. However, taking shots of them is difficult, especially without a quality telephoto lens (which I never needed or used much, preferring the spaciousness of wide-angle and accuracy of a 50mm) as they usually try to run away as fast as they can as soon as they see you. Shooting a running deer in low light conditions is not the easiest thing in the world, but as we saw a bunch of them one day driving by, I decided to go ahead and try anyway, just for fun and for personal memories. As a bonus, a couple of squirrel shots of our little furry neighbor here that was smart enough to knock the bird feeder off deck to get to some seeds.
