This young lady (I think... I didn't check to make sure) Came just about right up to me yesterday evening as I was raking pine needles up from the driveway. Wasn't sure if she was going to help rake or just play in the pile. But in the end she and a few members of her family just watched and had a bit of supper.

Thanks everyone.

Using the FZ50:

The first one, she was only about 10, maybe 12 feet away, The second 15-18 ft away, the third, they were 25-28 ft away.

Exif info says it was 59.5mm focal length on first, 88mm on second, 25.6mm on the third.... Not sure how that translates to 35mm equivalents and I don't feel like doing any math right now :?.

Third shot is cropped... I don't think I cropped the other two.

could be taken a couple of different ways ;-)

Last fall /winter we had up to 40 deer or so in the yard on just about on a daily basis, but they usually didn't come until it was too dark to get a decent photo, and I don't like to use a flash and startle / irritate them.

These came early enough that the light was still borderliine decent enough for a photo, although the amount of noise in these and the others I took is kind of disappointing.

We get lots of critters here even though town has grown up around us and we aere no longer on the edge of wilderness. Had a bunch of raccoons and skunks... and a couple of months ago I caught a couple of fleeting glimpses of a mountain lion late at night, right in the back yard.... which I think is why I don't see the raccoons, skunks and regular kitty cats as often as I used to.

We get bears and even the occasional elk too, although the bears don't seem to come up close to my house anymore since that time a couple of years ago when I took the trash out at about midnight and came nose to nose with one at the dumpster.... I think we BOTH decided "That was TOO close."....:O
