Deer on the Creek

No photos of deer in this post.  But thanks to the ice and snow on the creek, you can see where they've been.  And yes, they walked right across the dock, probably sometime yesterday.

Even about a foot from the edge of the ice, the ice is thick enough to support the weight of the deer.  I wasn't about to try climbing onto it, though.

Meanwhile, the middle of the creek is still flowing, with small ice floes still drifting along.

I had to take one more photo of the creek, but only to capture the rare (for February) reflection of blue skies and cumulus clouds.
