Caught this cutie this am nibbling on the hemlock trees right near my house. Although I have a full body photo, I like this one for the fun of it.

Like what you have done here Cindy.. Almost a touch of xmas fun in the snow and yet also revealing a lot of it's life and the challenges of winter.
Make your life spectacular!

This is a nice fun image of what really happens in our yards. We love having the deer around - most of the time. However their eating our bushes and spring flowers makes us wonder. Good capture of the perpetrator in action.

Nice peek-a-boo shot! Great with all the fresh snow.

Cindy, love the peek-a-boo POV, intimate and captivating, along with a bit of 'aha, there you are!'  A lovely wintry scene and mood you've captured - very much enjoyed.

You were right when you said you had 'quite a bit of snow' last week!

A great combination of the harsh realities of winter and the comical expression of this deer caught munching on your trees. Nice one, Cindy!

Thanks all, for your comments. Yesterday AM I found this "cutie" and her friend devouring my holly and yew bushes, 2 feet from my front porch!. Not so cute. But I think it will be a tough winter with little forage- the deer have not done this for some 30 years. These are 2 fawns I am pretty sure I saw this spring with their mother.
