OK guys, here's something just for fun to see how observant you all are. This is a photo that was taken by a very good friend of mine who owns a small deer park. This photo was taken last year during the really heavy snow that we had. Have a really close look and see if you can spot how many deer are here in the snow.
I'll give you the answer in the next post!

Did you spot all 5 deer then? I doubt it and it just goes to show resilient they are being buried in the snow and surviving by huddling together and sharing their natural body heat.
If you doubt that there were 5 deer then here's the proof - Both photos were taken by Peter Boddy just a few second apart!!
 
Edit: Peter Boddy (Who owns this deer park) is a very good friend of mine and has taught me an awful lot about deer management, stalking and shooting as well as being one of if not THE BEST Live Animal Capture Expert in the UK. If you appreciate reasonable photos of deer here's a link to the Deer Park Photo Gallery (And the rest of his web site which I have designed and manage) on Peter Boddy's "Live Animal Capture" web site, most of which I have photographed myself.

Snow-as the northern peoples will tell you - is an excellent insulator.

It also obviously made for some first class camoflage for the deer too as only a couple were visible in the first photo!
On a "side note" - I have to admit that I do like to see a couple of inches of virgin snow on the fields where I shoot as it gives me a chance to see exactly what is moving all over the land!
