The Fawn in the Woods

When at Wildwood, my mother and I found ourselves wondering one thing — in all of this preserved woodland, where were the deer? After all, if they can roam Main Street in Westhampton Beach, why not these woods?

Off in the distance, the sound of maintenance trucks roared, and all of a sudden, at the top of the hill on the path in front of us crossed four or five deer, from one side of the woods to the other. We approached the side they crossed to cautiously, wary of scaring them, but it seemed they were more curious than frightened. They stared at us while our cameras went click click click.
