It's an albino ..................


Last night as it was getting dark I went outside to find Maggie May and bring her inside for the night. I went out the back door and something caught my eye. There were four deer grazing in the back yard near the fields. One of them was the purist and brightest white I've ever seen on an animal - he almost glowed!


I slowly crept back inside and went to get my camera. I had to stay near the house because they had seen me and were ready to run if I started toward them. I am not a photograher - all I know how to do is turn the camera on and push the button to take a picture. I never have learned to change settings and make adjustments. I'm purely a point and shoot girl. The picture above is not very good, but you can see the albino deer - he tends to stands out.


They will probably be back again, so I'll keep an eye out for them around dusk. Maybe I'll be able to get a better picture.

I didn't know big animals like deer could be albino - and not so white like that!

I wonder how he will survive? Animals tend to attack their own kind if they are very different, as do birds.

You must keep an eye on him! You are so lucky to see this!
