White-tailed Deer

Odocoileus virginianus


Tall, light brown, and long legged the White-tailed deer is most easily distinguishable by the white underside of its tail which it raises to alert other deer around of danger.


Found basically anywhere from southern Canada to southern Mexico.


Saw these two walking (around seven thirty) down our dead end street while I got rest to leave for work. At that time we'd had a heavy snow storm Thursday into Friday and the temperature was bouncing from negative five to zero. I figured they didn't want to walk in the snow.
