Default traffic ticket, need advice, improper use of headlights

Hello,

I just recieved my first ticket this evening, so I figured I might as well try and do some research online to look at my options and possible chances of getting the ticket erased. (might as well try right?)

SCENARIO
I was driving a 1999 chevy malibu in fine condition with all working and functioning parts. time is 1030 pm. The violation occured on a residential/rural area(houeses on one side, farm land on the other. I pull up to the end of one street, with no one in sight. There is a stop sign. This is a T intersection i arrive at. At the left side of the T intersection is a cop waiting to nail people who blow the stop sign, becuase if you turn right u will get to a major road (basically everyone turns right at this T intersection., and most roll through the stop sign)

I see the cop there (i know the area)and I come to a complete stop, stay within the speed limit.
After I turn adn drive maybe 200ft there is an oncoming car, in the other lane.(one lane road each direction separated by double yellow) I flash my brights twice at the car. About a half mile later the cop pulls me over.

notes:
- please also read diagram and actual convo listed below
-yes i was guilty i flashed the driver to and only to warn him of the cop,
- is this wrong or illegal?
-can he prove there was no deer?
- can he prove if i tell the judge i was checking my lights because i had a prob with my idiot lights?
- what would be your course of action?
- should i just pay the 45 and take a ticket on my record, its not the money but the fact i got a ticket for flashing my brights and doing nothing more
- i can see how exposing where the cop is hiding will piss him off, i wont do it again, is there any way you see i can get out of the ticket?
-the initail road is 35mph and the second road is 25mph the 25 mph does NOT have houses directly on it, just neighborhoods branching off, the road is wide and no reason to be 25mph

Actual conversation: (not exact words but very accurate summary)
cop: (knocks on window)
me: (hands him items ready prepared)
cop: is there a problem with your headlights?
me: no, sir, i dont beleive so.
cop: i pulled you over becuase you were flashing your brights at other dirvers to signal them of where we were.
me: i was flashing my lights not at the dirver but becuase there was a deer in the farm next to the road
cop: do you have any prior tickets?
me: no sir, I have zero
cop: ok wait here please

i wait he comes back hands me ticket says i am recieveing it for "improper use of headlights, 39: 3-60
