Spring is a bustling time for the inhabitants of our natural landscapes. It’s a fantastic season for wildlife enthusiasts to spot a variety of animals, especially as they become more active.

4. Capture the Beauty Without the Crowds

With fewer visitors to popular spots, spring allows for a more intimate connection with nature. This means not only more space to explore but also better photo opportunities. The serene beauty of the Bruce Peninsula and the tranquil waters of Muskoka are just waiting to be captured, without the need to navigate through summer crowds.
