Waiting for the big reflector

Before someone asks, no we didn't get really much snow yet this winter, except for a few snow flakes last night. They quickly melted away later this morning. This photo is from February 2010, when we had  lots of snow and the White-tailed Deer came really close to the house in desperate search for food. If it comes to driving nobody likes the snow but if we talk about wildlife photography, I at least wish we would have some of the white stuff on the ground. This photo tells the story why I have such weird thoughts. Snow is an excellent natural reflector and it bounces the light up and makes shots like this one real simple.
