Oak Bay News reader gets a laugh at young bucks’ expense

Oak Bay News reader Robin Gubby offers a trio of images offering that hint of late spring brightness.

The two flower photos, were taken on a driving tour of the Monterey and Victoria avenues area of Oak Bay.

“The photo of the two young bucks was taken through the window at a house I used to own in Rockland, actually taken several years ago, but at this time of year. I have seen several (not the same two) this week walking by my patio in Oak Bay (but I didn’t have my camera with me!),” Gubby said in an email to the Oak Bay News.

“The other night I nearly ran down two more on Foul Bay Road just by the Brighton crosswalk, who just stood looking at the car as I came to a stop, then walked by slowly. I didn’t get their names.”

The Oak Bay News is starting to plan our Great Faces and Special Places to come out in print this summer.

The special feature showcases your photos that highlight people, places and moments in our community. Send your photos to editor@oakbaynews.com.
