New Snow

Yesterday’s storm left a foot of fresh powder in its wake. Today dawned cold and clear becoming quite nice as the temperature rose to the freezing point with warm sunshine and no wind. The deer became active as the sun neared the horizon pouring out into the fields to forage under the new fallen snow.



Feeding on the buried grasses and forbs left snow clinging to their faces.

I love shots in the snow! I'm hoping to get some of the elk soon myself. Great work once again, thanks for sharing!
