HILTON HEAD ISLAND, SC (WIS) -

Even the wildlife wanted to enjoy the summertime weather at lovely Hilton Head Island this July 4th weekend. 

Steve Doudoukjian, of Columbia, was vacationing with his family on July 3 when other beachgoers noticed a different-looking swimmer. Once ashore, they saw the small deer running on the beach at the water's edge. 

"Here's something you don't see every day...," Doudoukjian wrote on Facebook on July 3. 

He says the photo was taken in an area of the beach between Marriott's Grande Ocean Hotel and Coligny Beach Park. Doudoukjian said he believes the deer probably went back into the ocean because she was scared of the crowds. 

"She was still swimming around when we left," Doudoukjian said.
