Picture of a white faced fawn that comes to visit the garden. Have a doe that has a set of triplets as well, some oddities this year.

Wow, really interesting. In New Jersey over the many decades I've come upon several deer with out-of-the-norm colors. They were all adults, so it apparently didn't interfere all that terribly with their ability to survive. One coal black, several dark sables, one snow white, two pale cream, a few light tannish, lots with one or more white sox on their feet, and a few that were pied (large white blotches over the normal coloration). I always came upon them when I didn't have a camera on me. But then, we didn't have iPhones then and cameras weren't something you carried around in your pocket!

Very pretty! We've harvested a couple of piebalds along the way while bowhunting over the years...always makes a nice hide for tanning and saving.
 
And then we all jump out and yell "surprise! we got you this tiny ad!"
