Getting Bigger

S.L.N.C. Bristol PA

the baby is about three and a half weeks old now and will soon start branching which occurs at about 4-6 weeks. i hope to keep updating the progress of this owlet. the mother is doing well, gliding silently for food. i also hope to capture her in flight soon. time will tell. jeff

on another note, i don't why the exif data says 950mm for my focal lenght. i'm using a 1.7 converter on my 400mm lens which should give me a focal length of 680mm. it isn't the camera because the same thing happened with my nikons. any ideas? jeff

Nice image! The reason the exif bumps the mm is because the FOV crop is 1.5. This would equate to multiplying 680 x 1.5 which gives you 1020mm. Is your 400mm lens a zoom by chance?

He is so wooly looking. Great job.
