The Great Horned owlets must have been hard to spot... they blend right in with the tree that they are perched on... almost looks like they are in disguise.

Great image which almost makes you think that owels grow from tree trunks.

Very nice! Nice length, especially when adding that TC. I wouldn't
think fill flash would be very effective at that distance, but it
turned out very nice. Cute little guys. Or gals. Or both.

They look quite young. Very nice shot but you could remove the green leaves.;-)

I would have 'removed' the leaves but I was afraid of stepping on the owlets in the process. I'm not a big fan of altering what I see in favor of a 'better photo'.

Glad you liked the shot!
