Rare Albino Whitetail Deer Spotted and Photographed by Bodendorfer

Albino Whitetail Deer Photographed in Spencer Wisconsin

Albino whitetail deer are a rare and fascinating sight in the wild. These deer, which lack the pigmentation that gives normal whitetail deer their distinctive brown coat, have a completely white or cream-colored coat. The lack of pigmentation can also affect the eyes, giving them a pinkish hue.

On April 2nd, 2023, the Bodendorfer Family in Wisconsin was able to witness and photograph one of these rare creatures. Heather, a fitness instructor, spotted a group of deer while on her way to teach a class. Among them was an albino white-tailed deer, standing out from the rest of the group with its stunning snow-white coat.

Excited about the rare opportunity, Heather immediately called her family to share the news. They quickly jumped in their truck to get a closer look and hopefully snap some photos of the unique animal.

The family was armed with the Sony A7RV camera and the 200-600mm lens, a powerful combination for capturing high-quality images of wildlife. They were able to get close enough to the deer to capture some stunning shots, showcasing the beauty and rarity of this albino creature.

Albino whitetail deer are rare because their lack of pigmentation makes them more visible to predators and other threats. They also face challenges related to their vision, as their pinkish eyes are more sensitive to bright light and may impair their depth perception. Despite these challenges, some albino whitetail deer have been known to live long, healthy lives in the wild.

The appearance of an albino white-tailed deer is a unique and awe-inspiring experience, one that the family was fortunate to witness and capture on camera. The images they took will serve as a reminder of the beauty and diversity of nature, and the importance of preserving and protecting it for generations to come.
