Okay so the picture is not the greatest....it was about 5.30 am and the deer was a good 250 or 300 feet away. At first I thought it was a neighbor's escaped goat, but then I saw the lovely ears and the graceful movements.

A coworker mentioned some time back that he had seen an albino deer in his yard as well. Good catch!

I think it's a white llama.

Guess it never occurred to me there could be albino deer, silly me. I saw a special on TV, Nat'l geographic, I think, with an albino gorilla. This is so cool, goat1of2. Thank you for posting the shot. I'll have to keep my eyes open around here as there are lots of deer on the Cary green way. Many evenings, the dogs sniff them out, and we catch a glimpse of them as they run.

The Native American's revered white deer... they thought they possessed magical powers. Maybe this means you're going to win the lottery!

What an amazing experience for you!

Neat find.

Somewhere in upstate NY there's a whole herd of albino deer. However, the herd was apparently created by recurrent inbreeding after being permanently fenced into an old army base. But interesting none the less.
