Photo of the Month - February 2011
Hello Nature Canada,
This White-tailed deer was photographed at Les Isles de Boucherville National Park, Québec in December, 2006.
He was quite a fantastic and lovely model!
Thanks for sharing this beautiful photo with us, Claudine! We loved those big, brown expressive eyes.
White-tailed deer are the smallest members of the North American deer family, inhabiting parts of southern Canada and most of the United States. These herbivores feed on many types of plants, from corn and leaves to fungi and lichen. During the cold winter months they prefer to seek shelter in coniferous forests, which provide cover from the harsh elements. Their name comes from the white underside of their tail – a flash of white from a raised tail signals danger is close by.
