    Superbe photo Yannik, quel “timing”!

  • Merci beaucoup Jacinthe :) Je surveillais ses mouvements, je savais qu’il allait plonger. Et grâce à mon 10 images/secondes, je n’ai que l’embarras du choix maintenant. J’en ai une, il a la tête sous l’eau. Je sais pas si je vais la mettre un noment donné :)
