Just as all humans have very different personalities, all animals have their own characters. If you’ve ever had a pet, you know what I’m talking about. Some cats or dogs like to sit right in your lap while you watch TV or read a book, while others would rather keep their distance on the other side of the couch. Some like to talk a lot, while you hardly hear a peep from others. That’s part of what makes bonds between people and their animals so strong… because we can really get to know them better than anyone else can.
But it’s not only domestic animals that have personalities! Wild animals follow their own paths as well. When this deer approached an ocean, she looked timid. But then, in the blink of an eye, she bounds through the waves with pure joy. Maybe she loves the taste of the salt water splashing on her tongue, or maybe she loves the feeling of cool water on her hoofs, but one this is for sure: she’s having the time of her life! This isn’t something you see all deer doing… This one’s quite the character!
While this happy deer was filmed on the south west coast of France by Anthony Martin for a film he is working on, it’s not uncommon for deer to live in places near a shoreline. This could have taken place anywhere from the shoreline of a woodsy Connecticut town to a South American beach. I’m just so happy this joyful moment was captured on camera.
If the sound of the waves and the gleeful spirit made you long for the beach… please SHARE with all of your friends!
