Nesting Owls

Last Friday, I spent the morning photographing an active Great Horned Owl nest. If you caught my images last year, this is the same nest as I photographed last spring. The only exception is that this year, there are two owlets instead of one! Twice as much fun for me! Here are a few of my favorite images I captured:

I’m planning on returning to the nest later this week. As the two youngsters get older, I’m sure they will be more active and, of course, require more food from mama!

Photographic Equipment Used:

  • Canon 7D Mark 2 body
  • Canon EF 500mm, f/4 IS lens
  • Bogen 3221 tripod and Wemberly gimbal head
  • ISO 800
  • Aperture f/11
  • Shutter 1/500 sec. to 1/800 sec.
