Deer

After we left Moraine Lake we went to the town of Banff, via the Bow Valley Parkway.
It was still raining which made the fall colors stand out even more.
We saw quite a few Whitetails and some Mule Deer

Deer

The park is home to both whitetail and mule deer, and both are common along the Vermilion Lakes Drive and the Bow Valley Parkway, particularly in the spring. There are twice as many mulies in the park as whitetails, and mule deer are common year-round in the vicinity of the Banff Centre and on the Mount Norquay Road. The mule deer are larger and have a black tip on the end of their tail in contrast to the smaller, more slender whitetails who have a white underside to their tail.” – Canadian Rockies

  1. Good to see the deer you captured so beautifully. They are so much larger and healthier than the poor little island deer we have. The inbreeding keeps them smaller. Plus their coats do not glisten like the Alberta deer.

    • That’s good to hear.
      Even though they were just beside the road, it was still magic as it was so quite and they weren’t bothered by us at all.

      They are very healthy, I don;t know how they can survive the cold weather.

      That is a pity, I have never thought of it that way.
