Ringtail Ranch and Rescue

One of the most amazing things about photography is the different doors that your camera can open up for you; the different places you can access that might otherwise stay hidden.


This past Saturday, our cameras went somewhere entirely new.

This amazing piece of land is out in Wainfleet and they were having an open house.  It was a great privilege to explore the range and discover all of the different animals housed there.  Many of them were rescued from tragic circumstances, but live an amazing life out on the ranch.

The primary goal of Ringtail Ranch and Rescue is education.  It provides a great opportunity for children and adults alike to get up close to animals they might otherwise never encounter.  I had never seen a lemur up close before and it was breathtaking to see the way they’d leap through the air.  They were gangly on land, but to see them scale a tree in a matter of seconds was truly a sight to behold.  They were curious and friendly as could be.


I’d like to extend a sincere thank you to the staff at Ringtail Ranch and Rescue for opening up their property to me, my camera and so many others this past Saturday.


Oh, and just in case you were worried there were only lemurs…

There weren’t.  Word of warning, watch out for your hair when this bouncing baby boy is around.

Lisa, that would be up to the Ranch. I would recommend getting in touch with them and seeing if they’d be willing to schedule some time. If they approve, then we’d be happy to arrange a session.

I’m so sorry I never got back to you on this sooner; but yet, it would be possible to work with the animals, though at this time of year we’ll need to be aware that some of the animals can’t be outside for too long.
