I did not know the proper name for the odd coloration for this condition until I read today's previous post. My wife's caught this photo of a Mule deer with the leucistic anomaly. She captured this photo and several others April 28, 2016 while we were visiting in Canyonlands NP, in Utah. Her 60d camera had just run out of battery, so I swapped the one from my 5d3, thus she got the shot while I just watched. We later mentioned to ranger that we'd seen the deer, and was informed it had been hanging in the area for several weeks and wasn't spooky, so wife's shot was at a lot less than half mile, more like 75 yards.

Canon 60d, 70-300L@ 300, 1/400s., f8, ISO 400. Picassa - some crop and resizing.

Wonderful background, the tree stands out in stark contrast... love that. Also, never seen nor heard of a deer like this...love to come across new forms of nature... it's quite humbling. Very nice, thanks for sharing (and enlightening!)

Thnks for your comments OldWolf, I had assumed that it was a color variant of an albino, but apparently not.

I like everything about this shot. I once got some shots of a leucistic wren, which probably didn't live a long life because of the coloring.
I also like the tree in background.
