I often think of the animals when people complain about the weather. Depending on my tolerance level, triggers the type of response I blurt out. “The animals are having a much harder time.” is one of the kinder redirects. Sometimes I’ll add, “Animals don’t have grocery stores or a thermostat they can use.”
Seedbud: really fine image. You managed to get good focus despite the heavy snow. NEAT!
Sure is a tough winter for deer.
Awesome photo! I always am amazed at how deer are both tough and graceful at the same time.
Love the deer.
It’s a rare occasion to see a deer, even in countryside where they roam. Even more rare to be able to catch one in a photo. Good luck sweet deer.
such a Lovely scenery.
Have you published a book of your prose with their photos?
I always love these little poems when I see them, and this one is especially sweet.
Photograph perfect for a snowy day.
Wonderful! This could be my own yard, where the ruminators roam. I have a love/hate relationship with the deer; enjoy their grace and beauty, until they decimate the tree peonies on their “woody browse”.
I love your blog posts. 🙂
So comforting and serene… 🙂
Great capture – she looks pretty healthy given the time of year.
Lovely! I hope she finds what she is looking for.
Very beautiful photo shot!
Stretch for the forage!
Better with camera than other ‘shoots’.
Great shot showing the hardship of foraging in winter weather.
I feed the deer in my backwoods all winter, especially during the time of great snowfall!

A beautiful poem evoking the energy of winter.
Very nice prose and image.
Great shot. What hardships these creatures must endure throughout winter.
