Winter visitors...

Wednesday, in the midst of a bone chilling snow, sleet, freezing rain 'event', several deer ventured down the ravine next to our house. It was fascinating to watch them from my bedroom window as they scampered through the trees. (I do like me my creature comforts and firmly believe that when the temperature is 18 degress, and there's a stiff wind, it's best to marvel at the beauty of nature from indoors...)

Here's Mr. Buck striking a classic pose.

He was quite handsome and not in the least bit shy when he spotted me taking pictures. Good thing he came close enough to the house for me to take a few shots from inside, because there was no way that I was going to take my good camera outdoors in that miserable weather. Also a good thing that he didn't come in to my yard to snack on the shrubs. Sure he's good lookin', but if he destroys my garden, he stands a chance of becoming a good looking piece of venison...
