What happened to these images of a running deer?

I shoot lots of pictures of wildlife near my home in Indiana. I shot a burst of a deer about mid afternoon on Jan 7th. The first two frames attached here look pretty normal. The next two look like ??? Like the deer is fading from sight and there is what looks like branches or shadows of branches overlayed on the deer. These four frames were a sequential part of a burst from my D7200. BBF, ISO 800, f8,1/800. Can anyone explain to me what happened here?

Well I suppose that used to be called a double exposure. However, that's not really supposed to be possible with digital media, or so I've heard. I'm definitely not the expert there. Looks like though your card could be headed on the downhill slide. Perhaps the last time you used the card and you deleted the previous images from it not all of the data left the card so when you wrote new pics on top of that the data collided. I think we usually call it a corrupted card and say to toss it and start using a new one.

I don't know what caused this problem but I don't believe it to be caused by a bad SD card. It is an interesting situation.

may be a shadow from a tree.

I have a D7100 that I still shoot action wildlife with, a couple things come to mind.
I see you shot with BBF focus, I assume you shoot in AF-C mode, if you shot in AF-S
mode this could be the outcome. When shooting BBF you must keep the BBF button
pressed to allow the camera to keep adjusting the focal distance.
Do you shoot with 'Focus Tracking with Lock-on', custom shooting menu A3 with my D7100.
I use this feature using 'Normal' setting 3.
It looks like you had a good initial focus but for some reason the camera lost focus. With the
conditions you were shooting in it looks like the camera didn't acquire focus again once it was lost.
The snow in the field and corn rows and the deer all blend together making focusing more
difficult for these conditions.

Rolling shutter?

What group of sensors were you using? Was it 51 or larger one of the sensors will lock on small piece of maybe the background. Also the shot looks too dark like compensation wasn't used. Also your shutter is kind of slow here. I would have used something over 1/1250 and auto Iso and cleaned up the noise with Topaz Denoise AI.

HDR multiple exposure can produce a similar effect. But what gets me confused is that it looks like a sequence so it wont be multiple exposures and where the big branches overlayed on the deer from?
Are those the original copies or did you mixed some frames during post?

Were you shooting through a window?

Those same branch shadows can also be seen in parts of the field. I think there was a bright sky behind you that was casting light and shadows from branches. It's not very noticeable on the field because the snow is bright and overpowers other light sources. The deer is darker and the sky and branch shadows are more visible on the deer.

It's the same effect as using a gobo in a studio

I'm pretty sure you can do a double exposure in camera with some of the Nikon cameras. And of course there is PS.

This a rather rare condition. The deer is phasing into a parallel universe. I've seen that happen only once before - after a considerable amount of drinking.

This phasing explains why you cannot find something, even though you knew you left it on the table, etc. Things phase out, and then they phase back. I wind up buying replacements, rather than waiting for the item to return.

That's exactly what it is. Those shadows are also being cast on the ground in places.
