More Winter Pics

Check out this guy.  I was so surprised when I saw him.  But as I watched I noticed that he seemed to be limping.
And as he got closer I saw the ice covering his antlers.
These guys were with him but they were much more suspicious of me.
He didn't seem to care, I don't think he feels so good, also if the ice on his antlers is not showing up, try clicking on the photo, it should enlarge it on your screen and you may be able to see it.
I ran back into these guys again later in the day.
Again this guy was posturing aggressively towards me.  If you could see the close up of his face, it looks like his lips are pressed together and he is staring intently at me.  I am not that close to him, I have my telephoto lens on.
I have taken to calling the one that continues to eat the "old guy".  
These three younger ones get the heck out of there and the old guy......
is fine with just keeping an eye on me.

One thing I love about snow on the ground is seeing the animal tracks, see the little bird tracks, aren't they cute.  If I said that to my husband he would give me one of those looks and shake his head.  

Rabbit.  Cute little rabbit tracks.  

Cat!!!   Big cat tracks!!
Run, rabbit run!!!!    !!!!!!!
I'm assuming the rabbit got away, in fact I am going with the story line that the cat and the rabbit were nowhere near each other, they both came for water at different times.  Yea, that's it.  In fact that probably is it.  These gigantic tracks belong to 

I love watching the turkeys, they look funny when they run down the road.  They are very hard to photograph because they run when you show up and I can never get in as close as I want and they fly.  I want a picture of them flying so bad, it's way cool looking.  Someday.

I was so amazed at the sunlight and the ice, it looked like the pastures were glittered with crystals.  It was beautiful everywhere I looked.  

I hope these pictures conveyed some of that for you.  :)
Hadley came with me on her first adventure, we brought Mommy with us for moral support.  And extra hands and I like her too.  She likes to go out with me cause we might go mudding.  Not on purpose, of course, but sometimes things just happen.

Her first driving lesson.
What a great picture for a jeep commercial.

I didn't think about the taking pictures of how muddy the jeep got, I tried not to get in to deep anywhere.  Walking home with a baby in tow, not good.

That Hadley is a doll, I'm sure glad you had her there to help! Your pictures are just amazing! It is pretty if you can get beyond all the muck! I'm having trouble walkin' in the nine inches we finally ended up with. The wildlife pics are stunning.

You all have a terrifically blessed day!!!

Are those mule deer? I don't know - just guessing. Those pictures are incredible. Neat story to go along with the animal tracks. Very creative. Made me smile. The baby is adorable!
