When we visited daughter Sarah and her Andy in Minneapolis over the Fourth, we drove up to Mille Lacs Lake (The Walleye Capitol of the World!)
After stopping at Father Henepin State Park and walking down to the Lake, we headed back to the highway -- only to be surprised by this:
An Albino Deer -- and there were not one but . . .
The pictures are a bit blurry but I was so excited hoping that I could get at least one picture of the deer.
Deer are beautiful animals and we have lots of deer on the prairie. And some of the biggest deer in the country can be found in our part of Kansas.
But I've never seen a white deer before and to see two -- THAT was exciting!
I've since learned that there is an albino deer herd at Father Henepin State Park. Protected they are which may be why we could stop the car and snap pictures without their running away as deer usually do.
I felt that they almost expected us to feed them!
Seeing these rare and unusual deer was certainly a highlight of our trip to Minnesota.
Please join friend Susan at A Southern Daydreamer to see what else everybody has been doing outside this Wednesday.
Excellent find... how extraordinaire! You can probably clean up that photo a bit on one of the free online photo websites, using their software.
Protected or not, that is a tres cool sighting!!! Tres cool.
Wow, a rare find and a beautiful one. So glad you were able to get pics of these beauties!

Great day to locate a white deer. Kewel!

Amazing find... I never even heard of and albino deer ... WOW... thanks for sharing!!
Martha, this was fascinating! I'm so glad you were able to get the pictures.
Wow! I have never seen a white deer either. I probably would have forgotten how to use the camera in my excitement.
Don't think I was even aware of an albino deer! But they are truly beautiful. Must be easily seen out there in the wild with those light colors.
Great photos, Martha. I have never seen a white deer and I am sure DH hasn't either. These pics I MUST show him. What a fabulous OW post.
I have yet to see an albino deer in the woods. You are a very lucky girl to get pictures.

You were so lucky to get those shots! I don't think I've ever seen albino deer before. Very interesting sight. Thank you for sharing them with us.
Most unusual post today and I don't think anyone will be able to match the uniqueness of your photos. What a treat, thanks for sharing.
Albino deer! How lovely to see them! I'd only heard of them until now, we have a lot of deer in the mountains too, they are so wonderful. My hands would have been shaky too! Thanks for the photos!
Love the pictures of the two albino deer. It's really a rare find and i never have seen an albio deer before.
Wow, I have never seen or heard of albino deer. How amazing!.
What a great time you had.
Take care and enjoy your day,
Amazing! I have seen a lot of deer, but never an albino one. And to see two! What a special treat. How great that you were able to get pictures of them, and how nice of them to "pose" for you. Kathy

Wow, I agree protected or not, a great opportunity. There used to be one around here along time ago. Deer are such wonderful animals to watch. Glad to hear you had a good trip.
