White-tailed Deer
Odocoileus virginianus
The White-tailed Deer (Odocoileus virginianus) is a very common species across most of North America as well as parts of Mexico and Central America. It is certainly the most familiar large mammal in the United States and the species may be seen in a variety of habitats. There are several sub-species recognized with considerable size variation noted. The buck at right was photographed in July, 1995, in Starr Co., Texas. This nice buck's antlers are in velvet and he has just paused for a drink. This shot was taken with a Canon T-90 and a Sigma 500mm F/4.5 lens on Fuji Sensia film.
The buck at right was in Kenedy Co., Texas, in September, 1995. The red blooms on the background are called Turk's Cap, a common shrub in this area of Texas. This image was taken with the same gear as the previous shot. The next three shots at right are from the same location.
The doe shown here was in Kenedy Co., Texas in February, 2002. This shot was taken with a Canon EOS 1N and EF 500mm F/4 L IS lens on Fuji Velvia.
The next two shots shown here show a doe at Palo Duro Canyon State Park in Randall Co., Texas, in December, 2005. These were digital shots with a Canon EOS 1D Mark II and EF 600mm F/4 L IS lens. This doe had been feeding near a prickly pear cactus and has a few spines stuck in her face.
The buck shown here and in the next three shots as well is just starting to grow his antlers. These shots were taken in April, 2006, in Hidalgo Co., Texas with the same digital gear as described just above.
The healthy young buck in the next two images shown here was photographed in November, 2006, at Aransas N.W.R., Aransas Co., Texas, with the same digital gear as described previously..
The fawn White-tailed Deer on the right was in my backyard in Dripping Springs, Hays Co., Texas, in July, 2012.
