The White-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus), also known as the Virginia deer, is a medium-sized deer found throughout most of the continental United States, southern Canada, Mexico, Central America and northern portions of South America as far south as Peru. The species is most common east of the American cordillera, and is absent from much of the western United States, including Nevada, Utah and California. It does, however, survive in the Northern and Canadian Rocky Mountain regions of United States and Canada, and in the Willamette Valley and Columbia River delta of Oregon and Southwestern Washington (endangered). There are also populations of white-tailed deer that inhabit the mountain forests of Arizona, New Mexico, and West Texas extending into Mexico. As a result of introductions, white-tailed deer are found also in localised areas of northern Europe. White-tailed deer are generalists and can adapt to a wide variety of habitats. Although most often thought of as forest animals depending on relatively small openings and edges, white-tailed deer can equally adapt themselves to life in more open savanna and even sage communities as in Texas and in the Venezuelan llanos region.

Here, I was trying to surprise him, but he turned his head and stared at me. Guess who was surprised to see that he did not go running?

Have a nice day!
