Jan 9, 2009: Bambis

Friday again, time for warm and cuddly critters.
This week it's cold and cuddly though.

Two fawns waking up to find it had snowed overnight.



I should think they would have been better off in the brush but I guess their mama didn't think so.

Maybe there was scarey things in the bushes?

Poor babies. They must be so cold.

Add two big sticks, and you've got a pair of venison popsicles

That reminds me: I need to get a bag of ground venison out of the freezer to make chili tomorrow. I almost forgot.

haha I should post the pic of the two bambis I have hanging off my back porch. They are covered in snow too, but slightly less animated.

... and rotate slowly over burning BBQ-coal for a few hours. Serve with home-made bread, 'taters and a couple of good salads.

Generally animals will stay still when in the early morning cold because they conserve energy and I bet the spot underneath them is nice and warm. We may think they look cold but they do have thick skin and a nice warm winter coat.

My cats disagree with you. They always maintain that it is too cold in our apartment; that's why they turn into adorable, snuggly heat-leaches the moment you sit down.

Add a black dress and you could also be talking about any Italian woman over 60.

Right. Since the snow isn't melting, their fur is keeping it away from their skin and may actually be an insulator.

See, what ya do is this. Ya stealthily toss a small pebble toward their general vicinity, to sorta spook 'em enough to stand up. That way the arrow can find the heart/lung area much more easily, dontcha see. Then, slice 'em, dice 'em, cover with Worcesterchestersireshire sauce & onions, 350 degrees for 40-45 mins.

I think they're just trying to camouflage themselves so as not to be eaten...
