Well done , did you have a platform at nest level? Alan
Thanks Alan....no platform at all. The nest was at least 40 feet up and I was able to stand and get those shots from probably 80 feet away shooting up. The male would spend time in a tree near where I was shooting from to get the nest and mom. He would follow me around with his eyes but was very tolerant. His perch was maybe 20' up in the V of the tree. I would go back and forth making sure to give them lots of alone time...while I can't be certain my presence didn't upset them it didn't appear so. The owlets would peer over the nest to get a good look at me but I never felt mom or dad feeling particularly threatened.
