Dear Cheese There is no such named falls in Canada. I know because no right minded French explorer would have given such name to a Canadian falls. We Canucks are too hardy and immune to the winter elements. Only a wimpy American would come up with a word like that. It is not even in the Canadian dictionary eh. My apologes to all Americans as most of you are not wimpy....just a few Texans.

Funny, Senor Patitio ;-)

I overheard this on an Internet chat line today. Patito: 'Connie, do you know why albino deer have red eyes?' Connie: 'No, Patito, I don't.' Patito: 'It is to help them hide in cherry trees." Connie: 'You're nuts!' Patito: 'No way Connie, have you ever seen an albino deer hiding in a cherry tree?' Connie: 'Absolutely not!!!" Patito: 'Well then, they hide pretty damn good, don't they?'

No Connie, there is no town called 'Frostbite' in Wisconsin, or any other place in the US. The nearest to it is Frostbite Falls in Canada. Frostbite is in Ontario, right on the border with Minnesota. The larger town, on the Minnesota side of the border, is International Falls.

Very funny Patito

@ Connie, it's been obvious for some time to those who pay attention here that jchip8 and poppy are the same person, and that they are both patito, who is actually farhad, and that artemis and lilly are siamese twins joined at the head who post as skip and robot, and that you used to post as comic book guy but are now peachfizzy and danis.

Fenderbender (garuff garuff wink wink) I'm not surpirsed that there is a town called Frostbite in Wisconsin; you yanks are not very hardy as compared to us Canucks - you have sensitive skin - vulnerable to the elements.

jchip8 has been uploading for well over two years, yet made only a few comments, using a couple of words each time. Some folks have left comments over time to say that Poppy and jchip8 are one of the same. I, myself don't know if that is the case, but I would not be surprised.

A Tibetan Snow Deer or a Wisconsin Whitetail? I simply cannot make up my own mind.
2010-06-28 11:54:50
Well Fenderbender (aka Patito, Knowitall and Quiltmender), you are starting to get a bit predictable. And, by the way, the number one tourist attraction in Wisconsin is fishing. Perhaps it is jchip8 that is interested in cheese making.
2010-06-28 11:50:09
My thoughts exactly Connie! Very strange, what do you think is going on?
2010-06-28 11:48:00
It is very perplexing jchip8, after all of your many many uploads that you would suddenly start commenting here on a rather trivial matter. In spite of the previous 'fiction' that you don't read or write English, you seem to be doing fine here even having read the rather convoluted text from Quiltmender. And, you have travelled to Wisconsin? Wisconsin is a rather out of the way spot for foreign visitors to the US. What is the real story here jchip8?
2010-06-28 11:40:08
I must commend you Reginald Quiltmender (aka Patito and Dr Knowitall) on your imagination. It is quite a tale you weave.

JChip8, I am inclined to agree that these are albino deer. Albino whitetail deer from somewhere in North America, but I do doubt if they are from Northern Wisconsin. Albino whitetails do occur throughout their range, from Canada all of the way to Mexico (including Wisconsin) although they are relatively rare everywhere in this range. One hotspot for them, where they are not quite as rare as elsewhere, is near Raleigh, North Carolina.

Well, Dr Knowitall (or Patito, who I think you really are): Your sense of humor is sometimes passed over by others that take you seriously. There is no such a thing as a "Tibetan Snow Deer" and, if there were, it's habitat would not be "high in the mountains" since deer are not creatures of high elevations and even elk, that do utilize high elevation habitats in season migrate, in winter, to lower elevations. Also the animals in the photo are clearly albino, although there is no way of knowing from the photo where it was taken.

Well, msnae, your comment initiated a whole series of other comments totally unrelated to yours, however, I think that you were wrong in the first place. To me the coloration of the two deer (eyes and all) are completely identical. I also disagree with your conclusion that "this photo is a true wonder".

Au conttraire, my dear Jchip, it is you who need to "get your facts right." If you were an American you would understand that the so-called "albino" deer in Wisconsin are an elaborate hoax contrived to boost that state's dwidling tourist economy, there being absolutely nothing more of interest in the state with the exception of cheese making. And let's face it..you've seen one cheese making operation you've seen 'em all, right ? So, each year a few ordinary deer are captured and taken to a state wildlife rehab facility near Lake Wobegon where they are bleached. They are then released into the wild, but not before they are conditioned to hang around near major roadways and shopping malls so they can be more easily spotted. I know this to be the case because my brother married a girl from the little town of Frostbite, Wisconsin, near the Canadian border, and we visit them there every year during the annual Lutefisk Festival.

WOW jchip8, I thought Poppy said you can't write in English, and that was why she would respond to comments addressed to you. Yet, you managed to find your way to an English speaking country (as English as the Americans can be...what ;-). Wonders never cease!!

Get your facts right Quiltmender. Iv'e seen them myself. Albino deer in Wisconsin.

Nonesense. These are very clearly Cervidae himalayae, or Tibetan Snow Deer, sometimes called Nepalese Snow Deer as their range extends into not only that country but into Bhutan as well. I have personally observed these beautiful animals many times placidly browsing the low shrub and gorse just below the snow line, and seen many more in the giant rhododendron thickets of the high valleys where large herds of them still roam freely. Although still considered endangered by most international wildlife protection groups, and though efforts to domesticate them have not been completely successful, they are now routinely bred in capativity in sufficient numbers that snow deer meat is beginning to become available again in markets in some of the towns and villages. I can tell you from personal experience that on a cold night at high altitude, after a hard day scaling the majestic peaks, there are few treats more welcome than a roast haunch of snow deer and a warm pot of fermented yak's milk.

Great shot of a couple of rare and endangered Tibetan Snow Deer. Probably taken at the Zoological Gardens at Lhasa where several specimens are kept, since the vegetation in the photo is not what one would ordinarily see in the Snow Deer's natural habitat high in the mountains.

I noticed the Deer in the back has a lighter eye color than the one in front which makes this picture very beautiful. Its as if the adage, "No two snowflakes are alike" hold true. This photo is a true wonder and I love it.
