Along the Skyline Drive in Shenandoah National Park on the first day of February 2014. Deer were everywhere and reluctant to move aside.
This deer behind the wall was looking at the deer at the far end of the wall ...
... while the deer to the far right looked at this one. Both watching and waiting for us to move along. Both looking back and forth at each other. And for some reason they reminded me of some Muppet character ... don't even ask. It was hilarious and we laughed as they stared at us. I could just imagine what they were thinking ... "There's snow on the ground and the Drive is supposed to be closed so why is there a car here?"
They were, indeed, beautiful and stood out against the stark white background as the warmer temps gave a brief respite from winter.
