Mosaic Monday

 Click image to enlarge!
One day I decided to hike around a nearby lake as I knew there were a couple of Mute swans. And as it had been cold for 2 weeks the forest would be frozen and not muddy and slippery to walk in. As I walked around the lake the swans was lit from different sides. 

I also found out a new place where the Fallow deer bucks was resting in the snow.
And I was also lucky to catch a group of does. Normally they get lost as soon as they see a car coming. But this day it was cold and they were busy eating. I also had the sun behind me so they might have been blinded a bit. I was able to slowly walk halfway across the field before they noticed me. That have never happened before. And I was able to get a few shots. 

We still have sunshine and snow where I live. And quite chilly.
