White-tailed Deer Swimming at Greenfield Park in Milwaukee Wisconsin on September 12, 2016
When I arrived at Greenfield Park in the early morning a group of 5 White-tailed Deer had just finished gathering around a watering hole at the park. Some feeding was done there, splashing around some and then they headed for the lake. Arriving at the lake they lined up and all swam to the island successfully. What at cool event that was. The swim was so graceful and silent too. Images were taken on September 12, 2016.
A little nibbling on a willow branch
Just looking around
Standing around the water
Looking around some…
Starting to shake off some of the water from some earlier splashing
Shaking it off!
Making sure the water is out of the ears here…
Looking to group up and head to the lake
They start heading into the water
In they go
Here we go gang!
Across they go to the island
The swim…they do make it across
