The best photos taken at the Technoparc of Montreal – 2020

Every Saturday since May I go on an image hunting expedition at the Technoparc in Montreal. It is a preserved wetland where birds of all kinds swarm. I have listed 25 species and I am sure there are many more!

I am using a Nikon D750 with a 200-500 zoom lens. Usually I take my pictures there at extremely high speed, typically between 1/1000 and 1/2000 of a second. And often I “shoot” in bursts of 3 to 6 photos per second. This is how I managed to take some intersting sequences that I present to you here.

Some shots are not as sharp as I would like them to be because either the birds are really very far away and therefore I do a lot of cropping to represent them, or the light conditions are not ideal and since I am working at very high speed necessarily the ISO increases and the grain too! For “post-processing” I use Adobe’s Lightroom.
