After the blizzard

She came by with her mother to check out the cedar trees right next to the kitchen windows.  The snow cover for the last month plus the addition of the deeper snow during Tuesday's blizzard has made finding food difficult for the deer.  But I don't think she looks too skinny.  At our neighbor's the deer are helping themselves to the sunflower seeds set out for the deer.  Another friend feed them corn.  The Michigan Department of Natural Resources advises not feeding the deer, but it is hard to follow that advice in this severe weather.

  1. She's so beautiful and your timing was perfect! We saw 4 deer run and jump over the road near our house just last week! Nice snap!
