This sequence of photoooos was taken in southern Michigan while I was

photographing songbirds. It had snowed heavily the day before and

the heavy, wet snow was falling off the limber cedar boughs without

any help. A group of 8-10 white-tails periodically meandered through

the forest opening I was photographing in, feeding on the cedar. Every

time they came through, I hoped against hope that one would

tug on a branch and get plastered with snow. Persistence paid off

and once in the two days I was there, I got what I was after.

I guess the old adage is true, "Good things come to those who wait"!
