I went out to shoot some macro insect stuff tonight. I was away from my car, away from my other lenses when I see this infront of me. I had to shoot using an 80mm...

The, mom decided she wasn't comfortable with the situation...wish I'd had my 200mm on the camera at the time, but at least I got a few shots.

did you shoot in raw??

it'll give you a lot more leeway for cropping.

i've gotten to the point that raw is the only way ishoot anything

Yes, shot in RAW. The real issue is the amount of frame taken up by the subject--I was so far away that the deer were very small in the shot. These are 100% crops.

Next time you happen upon some deer, try backing away a bit. You might be surprised; I've often seen it happen that when I back away, they turn around and look and sometimes even come your way! I tried this after reading Monty Roberts' books about training horses. He tried out his body-language techniques also with other animals with some success.
