White-tailed deer

Odocoileus virginianus


White-tailed deer. are the smallest members of the North American deer family. Found from southern Canada to South America. This spotting is an adult male with a set of antlers which are grown annually and fall off in the winter. They have reddish-brown coats in summer which fade to a duller grayish-brown in winter. They inhabit fields and meadows and keep to forests in the winter where they can find shelter from the harsh elements. This deer has the prettiest brown eyes.


This white-tailed deer was spotted in the Kinder Farm Park woods in Millersville, Maryland
