Hidden in the thick weeds was a Whitetail Fawn Buck and I almost missed it. If he had not moved, I would have. This was at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma.

He’s called a button buck because his antlers haven’t yet grown. He has two bumps or “buttons” on top of his head. The buttons on this Buck are larger than normal and he comes close to being a spike.
