Ice Whiskers

I’ve said it before, but for someone who always professed to hate the cold, I sure do enjoy the new snow.  Not only the pristine beauty of the fresh snow hanging on the trees and trunks of large pines and scraggly limbs… but the animals the fresh snow tends to bring in.  Somehow the animals seem to move around more when it snows… and we get more glimpses of them… and if I’m lucky, good photographs.

The snow makes a gorgeous backdrop with it’s white contrast to the brown coloring of the animals fur.  The animals seem to enjoy the sunshine after the fresh snow as they relish in it’s beauty just as I do.

We saw a couple families of deer and elk with some young ones from the last litter… what a treat to watch.

They do have their personalities. If only I could understand elk speak.
