Leucistic Buck

I’ve been fortunate to get to observe, and shoot a pair of rare local leucistic Black-tail twins. Back when they were fawns they would always be seen together but they are running solo now. When I first saw this guy here on a recent evening he was actively sparing with a regular colored 4-point and holding his own. By the time I got to within shooting range they had finished. I think there would have been some moments to have captured in the fight. Oh well. I grabbed this shot as he walked thru a patch of setting sunlight.

What a goregous, beautiful animal, Dave. I’ve never seen one, but what a treat for you. Thanks for posting it.

It IS a treat especially to have twins. Pretty rare.
