Odocoileus virginianus

These were wandering past my window yesterday. I guess they're girls, since they didn't have any horns. They also look different than deer in the south. They had much thicker coats and were shorter and squatter than the thin, lithe southern deer. It's kind of neat to recognize Bergmann's and Allen's rules in real life. Well, neat for me; probably not so much for non-physical anthropologists.
