In the predawn hours of yesterday morning, I was awakened by Elena mumbling about pachyderms in the yard. I mumbled back that it was just a truck passing, but then I heard it to. The soft landing of a heavy thing in the yard. And then I woke up fully and thought, hot damn, Blog gold!
So for you, dear reader, I went and got the camera and crept around the house in my boxers when it was 17 degrees out to get these pics. I was really hoping for some elk, but alas, just 10-15 mule deer eating frozen apples from the snow. Some of them were bucks, but you could not tell from the photos...
If you don't know what a mule deer is, think about a normal deer with a big butt and really long mule like ears and then you have mule deer.
The rest of the photos of these charmingly reflecty eyed critters are here/
