The Manotick Photography group met January 9 2019 at the Manotick Public Library. At this meeting we were fortunate to have Barbara Adams making a presentation on her various photography trips. These trips include......an African Safari, Yellowstone Park, North American Animals (Park Omega and the Ottawa area), as well as birds.
