Around our place we see a lot of Mule Deer, but in other parts of the valley the Whitetail Deer are more prominent. When Joan and I were out for a walk last week we spotted these Whitetails grazing. As we proceeded down the road, they spooked and disappeared into the bush.
What really surprised me about the encounter was how young the one was. I don’t know how long ago it was born, but it might be a tough heading into our long hard winter at such an tender age.
