Default Great Horned Owls

In a park in Punta Gorda are a pair of nesting Great Horned Owls, I only got a few shots of the chicks, parents were hiding. The city blocks off the site perimeter so I couldn't get too close. Pentax Q with DAL 55-300 (1650mm EFL field of view crop factor of 5.5) on a mono-pod.
