If you look at the center fawn's hip, it looks like something is wrong with it. I don't think that is a spot but maybe a hole of some sort. There was a couple of coyotes in the area and I'm guessing they eventually got the fawn.

Adorable family. Unfortunately leucistic animals are often weaker & more obvious to predators.

Precious family portrait! Same here - I've never seen/heard of the white deer, either. Very beautiful, though. Too sad that one of them died... :"(

Wow, these look pretty unusual. Maybe they are the piebald type.
I'm also sorry to hear that one of the fawns died. :( Poor thing!

I have never seen white deers like in the picture. I am truly sorry that the one of the fawns died.
