The full Snow Moon
1. the earth’s natural satellite, orbiting the earth
2. to sentimentalize or remember nostalgically: They spent the day mooning about their lost love.
I watched the moon set during the frantic get-ready-for-school-routine in the morning. Then I mooned about all day. Then I watched the moon rise in the evening. The slideshow is of the evening’s moonrise.
The bachelor group of deer was around this morning for the first time since early fall.
The two young males were with a smaller deer. Sadly, the large buck wasn’t with the gang.
I’m pretty sure the large buck was shot, but AM hoping deer bachelor groups break up just like people.
I don’t care if someone killed the deer if they eat it, but I really wanted to find its shed before a final physical farewell…definitely mooning material. (:
I’ve walked behind this deer for years hoping to snatch up his horns. I always come out of the woods with a ton of raccoon pictures… I’ll never beat the raccoons at grabbing horn treasures.
