Those white deer are famous?

Last spring when my wife and I were driving, we thought we were out of our minds when we saw them, so we turned around, pulled off the side of the road and took some pictures!

I always look for them when I go by there, but I rarely see them. You had good fortune! Some folks say sighting the white deer gives you good luck. But I'm sure you have some interesting creatures out on LI, right?
