Default great horned owlet

probably shoulda gone to check this out about 3 weeks sooner, since the owlets fledged about a week ago, but this little fella is still all fuzzy an' stuff... I was told this is the eldest of the batch. he was about 50-60 yards away, so a pretty long shot, even for the new Tamron, but hey... I at least got a couple of shots of the little guy! 7D, 150-600 @ 500-600mm, 1/1600 @ f/8...

You did great. Was this at the NWR? I was there last year to see the owlets in the nest but didn't get very good pics, very dark in the nest and a bit far away for my gear.

thanks, John. yeah, this was at Nisqually. the nest itself - or at least what I think was the nest - wasn't visible at all, and the one owlet that was still there was in shadow and almost completely hidden, showing only the top of its head and one eye most of the time.

I'd have to look at the photos I got but IIRC the nest was a hollow where 2 trunks met or something like that. Total shade and I had my old Tamron 200-500/5.6 with me. Had to add a TC to it just to be able to see the owlets. Needless to say the final image quality is not too good
