Cold and windy day wildlife in the Great North....

I just woke up, expecting a world of new snow, but it didn't happen. Apparently the storm dumped its load on areas south of here. But looking out the window to check the temperature (the thermometer is showing Farenheit), I saw two of the local deer, cute but wicked eaters of shrubberies, napping in the lee of the white spruce, out of the wind.

Awwww....

Here they are, the nearer one looking up the moment my hand held the camera to the window. I used the zoom to move in closer. They are only about thirty feet from the window, but look farther away in photos.

Ah! The nearer one is getting up....

Nope, he didn't leave. Now he's bedding down by the woodpile, under the further spruce tree, contentedly grooming himself.
