The natural world around me, both a few steps and a few miles, away.

Out of My Rear Window 2/6/11
Another snowfall last night left everything covered with a white icing. It's heavy, wet stuff, and I'm procrastinating as I find other things to do than go out and shovel. But, I'll have to go out after I finish posting this.
You can't see it very well, but the area under the feeders is all torn up. I got up around 2 AM last night, and, when I looked out of the window, there were four deer there, digging for food. I think that they got quite a bit because, for the first time in a long time, the Mallards didn't come. I don't know if the snow was just too bad last night, or if they have finally given up and moved someplace where there is more food. Anyway, it was beautiful to watch those four lovely silhouettes move around in my yard.
