White-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus)

image of deerIn winter, white-tailed deer tend to move about broadly in search of food, usually looking for acorns in the leaf litter of the forest floor or woody browse in brushy areas. As they move, deer can occasionally be seen in open areas. The deer in this photo were spotted in an Ozark glade. Even during this period of increased movement, however, deer will retreat to cover if they sense danger.
