Blacktail deer, Odocoileus hemionus

The Blacktail deer, Odocoileus hemionus, is found in the Northwest region of North America, from Northern California to the Alaskan panhandle. This image was taken on Vancouver Island where they are common.

They are similar to Whitetail Deer and Mule Deer to whom they are sometimes considered a subspecies. DNA tests however show they are a separate species.
