While moving a load of furniture I decided to take a back road as it has some scenic areas and sometimes some wildlife. Well, I went past this guy and not having too much time, put the truck ion reverse to get a shot or two. As usual, I did almost everything wrong, truck still in reverse, still running, and handholding it leaning on the the door rest, and into the sun. But, I do like the way it turned out. Got about 10 shots before I had to move for traffic (it's a rural road with lots of bypass traffic).Taken with 20D 500mm & 1.4TC iso 200 f/5.6 1/400 EC 0

I hear you on all of those circumstances, but I've gotta say that your pics turned out great! even with the light in front of you, it worked in this case for me because it gives a glow to the Deers velvet on his rack.
