Thank you very much Bernie. I look at the snow and the doe both as being soft and gentle, very calming.

Debra Plett

Thanks Heather. It was a nice surprise and great way to star the week.

Natures softness has arrived in Manitoba. A winter storm started circling through Manitoba yesterday and is expected to continue through tomorrow and possibly into the weekend. These pictures were taken in Birds Hill Park this morning in separate areas of the park. Most of the deer were hiding under big spruce trees and deeper in the forest. I did happen to see this younger doe and this small spike buck eating branches from the trees. The little doe was under a large grouping of trees and was somewhat protected while she ate. The spike buck was munching on branches as he wondered down a trail.
