They just wander down the street here in my world!

Home, home on the range, where the deer and the antelope play...

The snowfall had stopped for a day or so, and the snow on the ground was beginning to look a little scruffy Saturday morning, when suddenly I saw a deer outside the dining room window. Dick managed to grab his camera and rush to the kitchen window before the deer disappeared down the street toward the coulee. A healthy-looking young three-point buck, he didn't seem to be in much of a hurry.

Not long after that, the snow began to fall again, and it kept snowing for a day and a half, until everything was covered in sparkling white again. Then this morning, we awoke to the sight of hoar frost covering everything with glistening white. Also known as radiation frost, formed when the objects are colder than the air, it is not particularly good for plants and trees, but hoar frost is beautiful to see.

Love the hoar frost, too. Did see it a couple of times in Montana when we lived there. Your photos are all terrific as always! Love the deer!
Hope your week is off to a great start! Enjoy! Stay warm!

Thanks for explaining hoarfrost, I have seen it but not known what to call it or why it came to be! That is a handsome buck, around here he would be much sought after by those who enjoy venison! But I expect he is pretty safe on the street by your house...

Wow...I love your bright blue sky!!! We have lots of deers here, but they are very shy and I have never seen one in the town! This is an amazing shot!
I hope you will keep the blue sky for a while..."smile"
Stay warm!/Randi

Hi Kay, thanks for dropping by at The Farm.
It's quite amazing to have deers strolling down the street in this day and age.
The hoar frost is beautiful.

Rajesh said...

Wonderful shots. That is lot of snow and very beautiful.

Kay said...

That's fabulous. We occasionally had deer wandering our village in Illinois also, but I don't think I ever saw one with antlers. That is so cool.

Kay said...

I do love how everything is frosted white! You won't see that when you come here.

Hoar frost is so beautiful, especially with the blue sky. I haven't seen any in so long, now that i think about it.
And the deer! Just sauntering past your window!

Reader Wil said...

Thanks for showing these beautiful wintry pictures!Hoar frost is lovely. We had it several times now here in my country! Last night it had been snowing so every autumn tree is now white.
Thanks for your visit and comment, which I wholeheartedly agree with!

When I see antlers, I think Christmas really is around the corner. The frost pictures are pretty but crunchy cold. :)

It is great to see. The deer too.

Beautiful shots and an interesting post. Thanks for the information about hoar frost. Great shot of the deer strolling up the street. These are all good shots but that was my favorite.

Powell River is the same. I see more deer and bear in town than in the bush. We have too many attractions for them. - Margy
