I found out you can't photograph deer at night with my camera unless you either have a tripod or something on which to set the camera. I do have a night setting, but without the tripod it is difficult because I shake a little. I didn't have my tripod, which is too bad, since these guys kept eating while we were sitting there and I was in and out of my car. I also cannot remember how to do manual settings, even though I used an SLR for years that had NO automatic settings. I have to take a course and refresh my knowledge in that area. I will do that once I get my DSLR.
So here you have a little family of black-tailed deer that look like something out of "Twilight Zone". haha.
Here they are with no flash and no light. It wasn't really that dark, yet.

In my headlights and with flash:
So, there you have it. Some pretty bad photography!
