Taken during the News Year’s party we attended. The owner of the house was an avid hunter and there were hunt memorabilia everywhere including a huge Elk head above he mantel (for those who remember Fawlty Towers think Moose). I believe there was also a room upstairs with a number of animal heads on the walls, but I didn’t actually see it.
These two were inside a globe on the mantel (below the Elk head). It could have been a snow globe, but I didn’t want to pick it up and shake it to find out. To be honest I’m not even sure that these are reindeer or some other member of the deer family. They look a bit too tall and elegant to be reindeer – I seem to recall that reindeer are stockier and have shorter legs but what do I know.
As mentioned in an earlier post, the only camera I had with me was the one on my iphone 5s. Clearly it’s not a brilliant picture, but sometimes it’s good to experiment.
