Female deer at Lac Phillippe - Gatineau Park

I'm the Photographer and a Graphic Designer at the National Capital Commission and for the past two days I have been taking summer photos in Gatineau Park. While at Lac Phillippe, at the site of one of the yurts, this pretty doe made an appearance and I quickly managed to fire off a few shots without disturbing. I'm always mindful of nature photography and know that when an animal is distressed and constantly trying to move away from you ... let it go, you don't need 'the shot'.

I have found over the years, photographing lots of animals that if you give the space, keep moving but slowly from side to side and often looking away, they will often not mind your presence.
