    Spotted crossing field out back and heading to the neighbors wood lot
    Made a dash down the road to the neighbor and asked for permission to trespass and got the OK. Nearly dark and sneaking and slinking into their woods. About to give up when ahead of me a ghost appears. **** it's really dark, I bump the ISO up to 1600 and it's still so dark I have to manual focus. Take a few shots and then I watch it walk right up to 15 yards away. I switch it to flash and hope for the best.
    First shot

    Then up close with flash

    It's a spiker buck to boot. It looks to like some brown at the forehead so technically he's a pie bald but still cool
    Show the neighbor the crappy shots I got and ask for permission to set up a blind and he gives carte blanche. So I will wasting time you know where :D

    Very nice shot! That is a once in a lifetime spot. Hopefully you will see him again. Thank you for sharing that beautiful animal!

    Agreed - a rare sight and great work working in really dim lighting!
    Good luck with the hide and capturing more shots of him!
    *is now very jealous*
