White-Tailed Deer

Who won the skeleton beauty contest?

Nobody.

Interesting Fact: The conversion of land adjacent to the Canadian Rockies into agriculture use and partial clear-cutting of coniferous trees (resulting in widespread deciduous vegetation) has been favorable to the white-tailed deer and has pushed its distribution to as far north as Yukon. Populations of deer around the Great Lakes have also expanded their range northwards, due to conversion of land to agricultural uses favoring more deciduous vegetation, and local caribou and moose populations. The westernmost population of the species, known as the Columbian white-tailed deer, once was widespread in the mixed forests along the Willamette and Cowlitz River valleys of western Oregon and southwestern Washington, but today its numbers have been considerably reduced, and it is classified as near-threatened. This population is separated from other white-tailed deer populations. ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White-tailed_deer )

    • Thank you very much, I am really glad that you enjoyed it. If you look into his right eye there is something in it I think something got stuck. I really appreciate your feedback and Happy Blogging! 🙂

      • Oh my! Poor thing, there are weed seeds on its eyeball. Weed seeds in eyes were an issue when I used to raise cattle.I hope the deer was able flush the seeds before his eye was really damaged.

  1. Thank you for showing us this beautiful deer and giving us all the information.

  2. I love deer ( and almost all wildlife) and am grateful for your photos… do deer have very good eyesight? I have some in our back lot that at times seem to be watching me in our house through the windows but it may just be my imagination!

    • Their sense of sight isn’t the best. To put it bluntly, if they were humans, they would need to wear glasses. But they do have phenomenal sense of hearing. Thank you very much for stopping by and sharing your thoughts with us. Happy Blogging! 🙂
