This week has brought a major dump of snow and bitter, unusually frigid temperatures to our region – a place normally balmy enough to be the winter envy of the rest of Canada.
Our senior resident buck, QT, was not favourably impressed. As I aimed my lens at him through our window this morning, I could hear his complaint, and his related question: “I’m OK with a bit of snow, but this is WAY too much, Mr. and Mrs. Man! Why on earth did you allow this to happen?”
It’s a very good question, indeed, for all of us humans to be asking ourselves about now.
I haven’t been blogging much recently, but I have been posting photos and short comments several times each week to Mastodon (which I’m using instead of Twitter these days). If you’d like to join me there, you’ll find me at: @firstname.lastname@example.org
Laurie, so good to see your posts come through my email, I have missed seeing your beautiful work. We also had about a foot of snow here last here and now getting plenty of rain so it will not last – but my dog was not a happy camper about all the white fluff after it iced up. QT is gorgeous!
Thanks Connie, good to hear from you and thanks for the lovely compliment! We’re getting rain here today, too – maybe by tomorrow our driveway might even be passable. Best of the season to you.
Awwwe. Poor guy!!!

At least the snow only came to his knees when he stuck to the paths we’d made! I watched our little fawn, Cedar, trying to navigate his way through it and it was up his chest. Cold!
Great shoot of your little buck…and he’s in prime condition.
Thanks Fred. He’s getting on in years – he was born in spring of 2013 so is apparently fairly “elderly” now. But yes, he seems to be aging well and we hope he stays healthy and fit for a long time yet.
