This doe was wandering around our backyard! The human took the time to take pictures of this creature instead of feeding us more treats. How dare she?! Whitetail deer are interesting, but guinea pigs need treats on demand.
Well, we must share the pictures so here they are:
She was eating and wondering peacefully before being bothered by this red winged blackbird which flew into her back:
She seems confused as it passes by and perches in a nearby tree:
She decides to go investigate:
And seems generally interested in the bird!
Then it flew up again and she got scared and ran:
Our owner loves these “majestic” creatures (her words, not ours).
I guess these two deer, a stag and a doe, live in Lake County Michigan. Some of the comments on the pictures indicate people may have seen more of them in the same area. I wonder if they are true albino deer or if it is some kind of genetic defect of the deer in the area? Whatever the cause, they are majestic looking and I would love to see one!
