Seeing that it's Christmas Eve, I thought maybe Frederic W. Koski's deer photos here today would be just right as the little ones are anticipating hearing the sound of the reindeer hooves this evening. And even if you aren't a believer, they're still really awesome deer shots to view.

Fred didn't say exactly where these were taken, but I'm assuming near his home in Three Lakes, as he titled them, "Little Visitor". It does look to be a young deer and Fred was able to get in there UP close and personal it seems…well, at least his lens zoomed in there right next to his visitor. I like the markings on this deer's mouth. Both sides have a brown line like was dribbling while eating lunch, but since it's on both sides, I'm guessing it's just a natural marking on this one. Interesting to note, though, and look for on future visits, to see if it comes back to say hello again.

Merry Christmas Eve from Fred's little visitor and all of us here at Pasty Central!

Happy Christmas Eve!

Know the last 2 Winters have been hard on the herd. Hope this Winter helps them out and the population rebounds.

Beautiful animals; except when they are rolling up over the top of your hood at 60 mph. Merry Christmas to all.

"… …"

Thank you, that was absolutely stunning! Mahtavaa!

The Italian tenors Luciano Pavarotti, Andrea Bocelli, etc. are among my favorite musical artists (plus Spaniards Plácido Domingo and José Carreras, and recently Il Volo as well). Now, after hearing this I'll have to include Petrus Schroderus in my short list of favorite tenors!

That was a nice video, but I was initially a tad unnerved when I saw the black uniform and gun and then I realized he is a police officer.
Very dramatic!

By Richard J. (Dick_fl) on Friday, December 25, 2015 - 07:35 am:

Yes he is an Oulu police officer. Each year he records a musical "Christmas Card" for his department to send. I enjoy his "cards" and wonder if he has any recordings out there somewhere.
