After considering the weather forecast calling for 2-5 inches of snow overnight we decided to scrub our plans to visit Pennsylvania's elk country today. Staying close to home seemed a better option. Only a light dusting of snow arrived overnight but shortly after dawn the wind kicked up as an intense snow shower filled the air. These bucks seemed undaunted by the wind-driven snow.
With snow laying on her back; a yearling alerts at a strange sound emanating from the woodland. The sound was an animal call, one that I am unfamiliar with, but it certainly gained the deer's attention as the entire group left the meadow sneaking away in the opposite direction.
The snow shower was so intense that my camera's auto-focus refused to function. With the auto-focus confused by the falling flakes I switched to manual focus and to capture these images of the deer and the falling snow.
