Last year I complained that we didn’t have much snow and we didn’t but this year is turning out to be more snowy than last winter was. Since moving to Utah most of the winters I have seen have been pretty snowy and the winter of 2013/2014 was a bit above normal at times.
I photographed this frosty Mule Deer buck in snow on Antelope Island State Park in December of 2013 while he was following a few does through a field of snow-covered mullein. He stopped for a few seconds and looked right at me and I had to chuckle because I thought the frosty area in front of his antlers looked like it was covered in diamonds in the bright light. Kind of his crowning glory.
Life is good.
