Then, looking out the window after dark, I saw these.
(Damn doorway! I couldn't see it when I was shooting.)



Focusing in the dark isn't easy. AI Servo wouldn't lock on, so I used MF & shifted a bit for each shot.

That's no doorway - and no wonder you couldn't see it - it's a ghostly portal that the deer use to teleport in near the tree!

The leftmost deer is just exiting, as shown by the streak of red light!

You're welcome, ford_JJ!

Seems that way sometimes with them!

(Maybe time to get back on those meds, too!)

What a great series. I've never seen a 3 legged deer.
