Owlets Revisited

I went back to try getting closer, focal length wise. Got a little closer, but it was very cold & very windy with very strong gusts of wind so the owlets did not show themselves much. Used a 400mm lens and a Canon 7D (1.6X crop body) with teleconverters. With the 1.4X teleconverter, it equaled approx. 896mm equivalent on a full frame body or with the 2X teleconverter – it equaled approx 1280mm equivalent on a full frame body. But it helped in getting my subjects closer. These are still cropped in some, but not as much as the 1st set.

Owlets In Nest

We heard about a Great Horned Owl nest at a local Environmental Center. The nest was in a dead tall tree across the pond and quite high up in the dead tree. I got a few images, but they were quite far away so I will try again with more lens power. While I was there I also shot a 10 frame panorama to show the location of the nest. I shot in a horizontal orientation for a vertical final image.
