Winter Deer

I did not go into the office Friday, rather I worked on some documents here at my Salt Lake house.  At one point I stood and walked around to stretch my legs and clear my head and I looked at my backyard through my sliding door.  It was a beautiful sunny day, blue sky and white snow.  As I looked at the snow and the brown, leafless trees, some 10 deer walked into my back yard.  They spent about an hour in the yard and the creek bed at the back of the yard.  I hurriedly grabbed my camera and walked out to take a few photos.  They heard me moving around and they saw me but it did not seem to bother them in the least and they continued to stand, to eat and to walk around. No matter how often we have deer in our yard, it still is a thrilling sight for me.  Here are a few photos I took Friday.

I am going to hang out in the Bud Cave today, reading, browsing the internet and  watching the AT&T golf tournament at Pebble Beach.  Oh yeah I will keep my on my back yard to see if I have any more visitors.
