On a recent visit to Pinawa, Manitoba, which is about 120 km east north east of Winnipeg, we had the opportunity to feed some of the many deer that are in and around the town.

There are many deer there and while not tame, they have become used to people. We arrived just before a large snow fall of about 14 inches. While the deer fend for themselves very well, its nice to give them a bit of food. There were about 3 different groups of deer that came by over the 4 days we were there.

This was the view out the back window. This one would come and stand by the back window, looking in. They have the most beautiful eyes.

Here she is right up to the window. What a great site.

After a while, a few would feed right out of your hands.

After they feed, the would just stand there so it was a great opportunity to get some real close up pictures

This one was a bit smaller and had a rounded nose so she was easy to spot when she came by

This one almost got her nose on the camera

After they feed and stood around for a while, they went on their way

Oh yes, I love the close-ups, too. And the funny one of the deer nose almost touching your lens :D.

What an experience to be having them this close to civilisation - our deer only ever get close to the road :roll: ...

And I see that the thing called SNOW does still exist, after all!?
