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.
