White-tailed deer

Strictly speaking this is a northern white-tailed deer (O.v. borealis), a sub-species.

Note the black line down the upper side of the snow white tail; the black tip to the muzzle; and the white rings round the black muzzle tip and round the eyes - these indicate this is a white-tailed deer. The dark coat colouration shows this to be the northern sub-species; it also helps that this is the only sub-species found in eastern Canada. They are at the northern limit of their range in Ontario, further north they are replaced by caribou.

Thanks for that info. We saw

Thanks for that info. We saw a few small groups at this location (a deserted campsite) and they were far more approachable than wild deer in the UK, so were quite easy to photograph.
