Wow, I have taken so many winter photos!!
After wading through hundreds I have started by assembling a December 2009 album here
December was a beautiful month marked by stunning images of frost, snow and ice.
The creek gradually freezes over.
A spectacular Boxing Day ice storm coated everything in a thick layer of ice.
This branch looked like a creature in the movie Aliens!!
Light frost coated delicate plants and grass.
Sunrise through the frosted garage window.
A white-tailed deer approaches cautiously from the woods.
And evidence of a deermouse hopping along the snow.
These are just a sampling. Please visit all my December images here

Yesterday evening I was driving to the old house to plant flowers. When almost there, two female white-tailed deer stood quietly close to the road. They didn’t run away which I thought was a bit odd. I then saw movement in the grass, a tiny newborn fawn!! I slowed to a stop. The fawn was so young that it had trouble standing without wobbling. It then started walking towards the car!! As it approached it made the sweetest nasal grunting noises. I quickly grabbed my camera and took these photos.
Approaching the car.
It's legs were very wobbly.
A little nervous.
Turning away from the road and back into the field.
In the rear view mirror I watched the mother cross the road and stop to tend to the fawn. It was a beautiful encounter on a warm June evening
