Wildlife Up Close: White-Tailed Deer

This gallery contains 3 photos. Nothing is cuter than this Bambi-esque look of innocence in your direction. This fawn is one of several white-tailed deer that inhabit the Greater Vancouver Zoo. S/he came to the barn for hay in the blistering early afternoon sun. Photographed on September 14.


While most of the (adult) deer were hunkered down in the afternoon heat (perfectly camouflaged from human eyes), at least one of these fawns was bounding up and down in the long grass, or seeking hay in the feed barn. This buck, like many of the adults of his species, came out when the heat started subsiding and the sun began to set.


Desensitized to the presence of humans, these deer are hardly shy or reclusive.
