Default Deer in the snow.

Had a couple of deer wandering about in the snow so I took a couple of pics.

Nice to see deer in their winter coats.

Kildale, fine shots of the mallards and deer.
Gloria, beautiful shot of the snow atop the oakleaf hydrangea. My garden in metro Atlanta got just a quarter inch of snow some days ago, but some is still around because the temps have been unusually frigid due to the Arctic oscillation (http://theenergycollective.com/TheEn...llective/56256)

As much as I'm not crazy about spending money on birdseed that feeds squirrels, I don't have the heart to chase them away, especially when it's been as really, really cold as it's been for a week, with temps at night in the low teens (in the Deep South!) and barely rising above the 20s during the day.

I shot this, as I do many of my photos, through my home office window. I call it: "Oh, pleeeze let me eat more."

Chasing squirrels away got me locked out of my house too many times. I gave up too and besides which... we like our squirrels... we just didn't like the way they destroyed everything and sucked through seed like there was no tomorrow. We're buying sunflower seeds for ours. It helps keep them from chewing our feeders to bits. BeUteful photo!!! We have a new black squirrel coming to our feeders. I keep trying to get photos but she's shy and sits on the east side of the trays which means all I can get is a tail. The tail is black but I'd like the whole squirrel.
