White-tailed Deer

Posted on Jun 15, 2015

Wherever you go you can find White-tailed Deer. Hiking through a salt marsh with a rising tide? You got it. This deer was in the Stewart B. McKinney National Wildlife Refuge. That is Long Beach in Stratford, Connecticut in the background with the even further horizon being Long Island, New York. It looks like a rather quick swim, doesn’t it? Yes, White-tailed Deer can swim, even to some islands! But I do not think they would be able to make it to Long Island from here…
