Behind The Lens

Location
I have shot this image at Keoladeo National Park, Bharatpur, INDIA.
Time
It was a misty morning in the month of January this year, around 11:30am - when I was walking through the pathways of Keoladeo National Park, I came across this beautiful pair of Spotted Owlets.
Lighting
Keoladeo National Park, is famous for its amazing light during the misty months of December to January every year. These owlets were facing a bit against the light, which I had to make it up with the exposure settings.
Equipment
Canon EOS 5D Mark iii, Canon EF 500mm f/4L IS USM, Canon 1.4X TC, no tripod, no flash.
Inspiration
The major inspiration to make this image was the lovely camouflage that the owlets were in with the bark of the tree and the way they were having an eye on me approaching towards them.
Editing
A very minor post-processing was done on this image, like the brightness and contrast correction - including a bit of increase in sharpness.
In my camera bag
The equipment I carry in my bag include, Canon EOS 60D, Canon 1.4X TC, Canon 100mm F/28L Macro, Canon 50mm F/1.8, Canon 18-55mm kit lens.
Feedback
Watch out for the camouflaged surroundings while wandering in nature.
