How many of us would want to be within a couple of feet and looking right at it when the flash goes off, especially at night? Yet deer do it all the time (bears too), sometimes repeatedly over the span of a few minutes.

Right, I figured she would be blinded from the flash and bouncing off the trees trying
to get out of there! LOL!

Some of our detractors make an issue of this. If you use red-eye pre-flash setting, the animal's pupil will shut down and you'll also get less eye shine.

Although intuitively it might seem that white flash is both painful and frightening to wildlife, my experience is that it doesn't seem to bother them much, if at all. Over the years my cameras have gotten many, many sequences of close-up white flash photos of the same animal; photos taken as quickly as the capacitor can recharge and the board trigger a photo. Actually, the only sequences I've ever gotten of an apparently startled or frightened animal came from IR commercial cameras. A red glow is a foreign experience for most animals whereas a bright white light is not unusual (lightning, sun shining through the forest canopy or just plain sunlight, vehicle headlights).

I have to agree with this. The most reaction I get is if I have an IR camera in the video mode. They do not stick around for that.
