19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Rare piebald whitetail deer observed in Minnesota river bottoms.

I'd heard the stories and saw the photographs and had even frequented the area where this almost mythical deer inhabited but I had never been lucky enough to see him. One day, while driving through the area, there he was! It was like it was an everyday occurrence for him to have a person stop and take multiple photographs. It was an amazing sight to see such a rare animal, and even better to capture him on camera.
