south gallery – Michaela Sagatova
Birds of the Dundas Valley, A Photographic Treasury
Michaela Sagatova is a Dundas resident and avid birder and photographer. She has had her works reproduced in many publications and books. Bird photography is a very challenging yet rewarding art demanding stubborn patience, skill and an innate eye for composition. Sagatova has what it requires to make her works stand out amongst all the others. A birding hotspot, the Dundas Valley is home to or on the migration route of many bird species, providing Michaela wonderful shooting opportunities. She is able to give viewers an intimate glimpse into the secret life of birds from her point of view.
Sagatova has captured many special moments to share with you by trodding off the beaten path in the Dundas area.
