Handsome male

Handsome male
On a drive along some of the backroads SW of Calgary yesterday, 27 June 2014, I pulled over to check for birds at a small pond. Three of these beautiful White-tailed Deer appeared, including this male and another male, plus a female. The males hung out together, and there was a brief moment of locked antlers. I don't know enough about Deer to be able to age them, but the males were acting rather like teenagers : ) Lol, guess that could make them any age. Unfortunately, one buck was missing the antlers on one side of the head, which I believe is probably permanent.

This was the same drive that I found the male Bobolink - an uncommon bird in Alberta, so it was a real treat.
