Mike and I took a walk the other night above our housing community to check out the new development that's under way up there. It has an incredible view of Royal Bay, Victoria city and Mount Baker on a clear day. I have to say I can't get enough of where we life; I kinda feel like I'm on a perpetual holiday although of course I'm not, but the fact that we live so close to nature amazes me everyday.
On this walk, we came upon a group of stags just hanging out. As I got closer, one of them actually inched his way towards me, allowing me to get some of these stunning portraits of him! It's funny too how you can see the flies on antlers! We see deer almost everyday but it was lovely to see them so close and together. They're such gentle creatures - most of time - unless they feel threatened they can really do some damage! We also see owls, eagles and other little critters quite a bit and love love love that we see them. Mike and I also took some time to take a few shots of each other, mind you I was having a bit of a bad hair day but whatever!
