who wanted to see what Daisy was up to.
I posted a video of them, struggling across the frozen crust on top of the snow.
Our snow cover has gone from 31cm to about 25 cm, with the top part being a sheet of ice.

revealed much melted snow in fields
They were taking it easy, our regular three. Two does and a yearling. Just lying down in the snow. The video is a bit fuzzy, since the warm temperatures created a temperature inversion, and the moisture was rising up from the snow.

|Oh, well. Maybe something *is* up!|
Bambi takes a rest from Jennifer Jilks on Vimeo.
Daisy and Dorah went outside, and this worried the one doe. It's been a hard day in the back yard, and the day is young. Bambi took a rest. Our regular three were sitting down, chewing their cud, relaxing in the back yard. Daisy kept on watching for her red squirrel buddy. Alas, nowhere in sight!
