Deer on Historic Jamestown Island, Williamsburg, Virginia


This deer calmly stood in the bullrush on Jamestown Island while the tourists wandered by and we took her photo. This is the site of Historic Jamestown, where the Virginia Company established the first permanent English settlement in North America in 1607. The island is mostly wooded except for the area necessary for the historic display and ongoing archaeological dig. It is home to many animals such as muskrat, turtles, squirrels, and deer who seem to enjoy life on the James River.

Isn't she gorgeous. Interesting how *we* tourists can miss the wildlife while we are visiting history ... I hope I've learned to really look around and SEE!
