The juvenile Great Horned Owl seems to be doing fine at our local park. This owl is likely one of two that I had photographed at that park about thirteen days ago when it was still in its nest.

The young owl was up in the shady crown of a pine adjacent to the tree where its nest sits empty.  I visited this beautiful botanical park in Marion County, Florida yesterday, March 31, 2015.   Please click on they thumbnail image to see the larger picture.  Enjoy!

  1. such an intense face for a fuzzy guy! 🙂

    • Hi Theresa, I think he or she was very confused and still learning how to cope with wind, flying, catching dinner and being safe. A big new world. It kept an eye on my and also was watching several medium-sized Cooter Turtles basking on the shoreline of the nearby pond. Have a wonderful day!

  2. It is super cool any time you have a chance to photograph an owl!

    • Hi Montucky, I knew the juveniles must be around so I went looking and found one. I think I got the shot because these are inexperienced and out and about in the afternoon. I am glad that I had that rare opportunity. Have a great day tomorrow!
