D7100 - A few more photos from down at the Owl's nest, Ottawa

It was a gorgeous sunny day here in Ottawa yesterday, so being self-employed I gave myself the morning off (always nice) to go down to my favourite Great Horned Owl's nest where all of us wildlife observers have been waiting eagerly for weeks for the new arrivals... and I'm happy to report that they have arrived safe and sound!!

Once again a word about technique: the lighting was quite bad with the subjects being in deep shadows from the nearby pines while the surrounding background was brilliant bright. I had trouble with my exposure levels at times and a number of shots were one or more stops under exposed. I did a lot of creative Photoshoping in order to salvage some usable images from the batch, but these birds were so endearing that I had to do what I could to be able to keep some.

I hope you enjoy them as much as I did taking them and working on them.
