Deer in snow pics

This one is my favorite, taken through the diningroom window:

I call it: "His Majesty". He has lost one antler already, and I'm chompin' to go out and search for it, but the snows are coming down thick and deep now. Maybe in a few days, after the rains wash it all away...forecasted...

and here's my usual birdfeeder and arbour shot, with two does, taken at 8AM this morning:

Nice captures TB. It was snowing like that about an hour ago here.

The wood is clear between the knots.

Taking another look TB

Is he missing one side of his antlers or is it just the way he is standing

Sure a handsome brut

He is missing his right antler, and I hope to find it, as soon as the snow lets up. I got 5 last year, gifted to me. I found them lying within a few feet of the feeders, in a period of just 3 days.

That is really something Trailblaze, being able to so frequently see these beautiful animals, right from your home. Beautiful pictures. I'd be afraid to move away from the window, for fear of missing something. :)
