Deer in Dundas Valley Ontario

The most incredible and unexpected brushes with nature will present themselves at times that are less than perfect. Mother Nature presented herself while Margaret and I were taking a drive through the Dundas Valley. I believe the six beautiful and healthy deer were moving through the valley looking for a safe place to stay for the evening.

I grabbed my camera and took off down a trail that would intersect the direction that they were headed. Feeling the rush come from seeing beautiful wild animals free has always been something I have found indescribable.

I hope you enjoy the photographs that I was able to capture in the short period of time. It is still possible to see wild deer, turkeys and a multitude of other animals near suburban areas if you are in the right place, at the right time.
