Almost airborne

I haven't posted any images of the Great Horned Owlets that I took with the new Sigma 100-400mm semi-supertelephoto, but those were, of course, among the first shots I took when I started to put the lens through its paces. Indeed, documenting the owlets was a prominent reason I so wanted a long lens... once I had to return the Sigma's bigger cousin to its rightful owner. So most days include a quick side-trip across the street to focus on the nest and its two rapidly growing occupants, both of whom are looking increasingly fierce and fine-feathered. I rarely see the parents, although they're clearly providing enough food for the kids to grow and be ready to take to the air and learn the arts and sciences of predation.
