caw caw swamp

this is by far my favorite place to paddle in charleston currently.  it seems to have a never ending array of wildlife to sneak up on, as well as so many different routes to take through the old rice fields and creeks.  this panorama was shot after i climbed the signal for the train line that runs nearby to the swamp.

i came across this deer calmly swimming across the creek today - only the 2nd or 3rd time i have ever seen a deer actually swim.
