We were up on the bridge crossing the Oldman River when a deer and it's mother passed underneath of us. As soon as the young one made it a safe distance away it turned it's head back and looked right at us! I couldn't have asked for a better pose.
Different than the photo of the day two days ago with the mule deer, this is a white-tailed deer. Still quite young but old enough to have lost his spots. You'll notice immediately the thick white haired border around his tail, hence the name whitetail. When alerted they will flag their tail up as a sign to other deer that there may be danger near (check the photo below). They have smaller bodies than the mule deer, and the males' antlers all branch off of one main beam.
