I was in Guilford, Connecticut this morning scanning the harbor with my binoculars searching for birds.Out In the distance I saw what appeared to be an animal swimming. At first, only the head of the White-tailed deer was visible but then its body started to emerge from the water.
I doubt it was going for a recreational swim. It might have been scared off or just wanted to join her pals on Grass Island.
Once she hit dry land it was off to the races!
You never know when nature might throw you a curve ball. I'm glad I was up early enough to catch it!
