nice action in this photo Yves. Great story...You could put out a wonderful story/photo book.

Yves Langlois

Thank you Debra. You can't believe the feeling I have to succeed in a bird in flight shot like that one. In 2016 I produce a 250 pages book of short stories. You are not the first one to tell me about a book combining photo and stories. Actualy it is only a dream, It demand a lot off work (that I know), but I may very well do it. A dream come true one day.

Clifford Dupuis

nice shot with a great story

Yves Langlois

Thank you Clifford. I took few shots during the event. That one is realy the one I prefer. I Like the background, kind of black and white, the lighting on the bird and the fish hanging from the beak.

Harold Fleming

Nice action shot, Yves! I agree with Jenny, your description lets us see more of the story.

Yves Langlois

Thank you Harold.. I have no problem to write something about the photo I take. I am still learning to do better photo. Combining both is a real pleasure for me.

Jenny Stevens

I really enjoy your commentaries that go along with your shots Yves. Almost like being there.

Yves Langlois

Thank you Jenny. I am much bettrer writer (in french) than photographer. I try to photography the same way I like to write. The good new is that I am getting better every year. And it is lot more exciting.

6 PM, the sun was ending a beautyful day. On the river nearby, a group of common mergansers where doing lots of noise, racings and splashes. They where fishing their meal before going to bed. It look so but the reality was a bit off. Two of them put no effort diving. They where steeling the fish from the others. Here is a female flying away from the pack to eat in peace.
