Description

Saw this deer jumping through my backyard. I tried to get closer to take a nicer picture but it looked up at me and ran away. It had light brown fur with a brown tail but with white fur on the underside. It seemed to be a young deer due to it's size.

Description from Wikipedia

The white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus), also known as the Virginia deer or simply as the whitetail, is a medium-sized deer native to the United States, Canada, Mexico, Central America, and South America as far south as Peru. It has also been introduced to New Zealand and some countries in Europe, such as Finland, Czech Republic, and Serbia. In the Americas, it is the most widely distributed wild ungulate.
