Cautious

One of my favorite things about new snow is how absolutely quiet everything is. When there's no wind (like this evening), you can almost hear your heart beating.

This doe mother and her fawn were trying to find something to eat under the snow when I "sniffed" my nose; and even though I was trying to be quiet it got their immediate attention (they were about 50 meters away). I don't think they could see me, so they just went about their business.

@grizzlysghost Probably helps them with heat conservation in your brutal winters. Our whitetails here have larger ears, but not as large as the mule deer.
