Our photo of the day comes from Climax, Oregon.
This stunning she-deer was photographed by Mark Heatherington. She is a black-tailed deer (Odocoileus hemionus columbianus), which is one of nine subspecies of the mule deer. This species was first recorded by the Lewis and Clark Expedition of 1804-06.
