Stop In Anytime


 A piebald deer has been in our neck of the woods since we moved in over two years ago.  Although we hadn't seen her for a while, this year we were lucky.  Actually we were thinking this may be her fawn since the one we saw had a lot more white on it's belly.



She's been coming in for nibblies before the rest of the herd, so although genetically deficient, her brain works just fine. 

According to Wikipedia,
"piebald deer is a deer with a brown and white spotting pattern which is not caused by parasites or diseases. They can appear to be almost entirely white. In addition to the non-standard coloration, other differences have been observed: bowing or Roman nose, overly arched spine (scoliosis), long tails, short legs, and underbites."


Personally, we think she's rather pretty...just another one of Mother Nature's wonders that stops by!

Don't you think she's a beauty?

She is lovely and it is sad to know that deer can suffer from scoliosis isn't it? My hubby has that problem but fortunately only mildly so.
I am not sure if you will read this comment or not but may I ask if you follow my blog? I have trouble at times knowing just who is who. No problem if you don't as I enjoy yours. Just asking.

Sometimes the non-conformists, like this piebald deer, can be the most beautiful to see.
