A Wisconsin woman photographed a rare albino buck in her backyard in Boulder Junction, Wisconsin.

The homeowner, Tracy Weese, saw the white 11-point buck in her yard while the lawn was covered in snow on Sunday, Fox 11 reported.

“His majesty just strolled through our backyard,” Weese captioned the posted photos, according to ABC 11.

The Vilas County Sheriff’s Office later shared Weese’s photo, and called the unique buck a “majestic creature.”

All-white deer are illegal to shoot in Wisconsin, according to ABC 11.

Hunters cannot shoot “albino and white deer which have a coat of all white hair except that the hair on the tarsal glands, head or parts of the head may be a color other than white,” according to Wisconsin Department of Natural Resource’s guidelines.
