Just as a winters day turns to night, a four point Black-Tailed Buck stands alert in front of an old barn. Large Gary Oak trees line the field’s edge and above them rises the Cowichan Valley’s snow covered Mt Prevost.
Okay, so that is how I would have liked to seen it! lol
I have to confess that I added the Buck. lol
Don’t you think the buck adds just a little more interest? lol I took the photo of the buck the day before this photo and I should mention that deer do indeed inhabit this area, but there just weren’t any visible at the time I took this shot. lol
