'A Great Day For A Swim'

Ketchikan, Alaska - This deer found sunny Tuesday a great day for a swim. The thick-diameter guard fur of the Sitka deer is well adapted to our rainy climate and these deer must enjoy the water as they are often photographed while swimming.

These Sitka Black-tailed deer inhabit the coastal rainforests of Southeast Alaska and the north-coastal lands of British Columbia. They can be migratory and resident.
