I captured these white egrets at the PARC NATIONAL DE PLAISANCE. There were 5 egrets and it was the end of the afternoon. I was lucky to find them. The first place I went in the park I came up empty handed. I couldn’t get any closer unfortunately as it is a marsh area on the side of the Ottawa River.

Started photography in 1975. Took photography classes. Learned black and white dark room. Did the transition to digital in 2005. Learned a few post-processing programs and made my choice to Photoshop and Lightroom.
I like to shoot wildlife, birds, macro, landscapes and street photography to name a few.
