Default FZ35 - some deer this morning

Just after sunrise, seven deer came through the backyard. They come often, sometimes to eat corn or sunflower seeds, other times just to check things out.

I shot a few shots, nothing very special. Most are shot at 18X zoom. I continue to struggle to get sharp shots in scenes like this. I don't think they are as sharp as they should be.

The last shot of the two deer was one of several I shot. Others were much better composition of them in the affectionate pose, but none were in focus. Time becomes critical, and perhaps I am too strongly a slave to the time to let the camera focus properly. Even this one is not very good.

And, the last one...

The lack of much color makes these shots pretty boring.

I think they look pretty good given that you are in full zoom in limited light. I don't know what ISO you were set on, but I'm sure your shutter speed was pretty slow. Your exposure looks good, color looks good, so maybe it's a matter of holding the camera more steady. Also, in slow shutter situation like this, any movement by your subject would result in blur.
