I think it's the eyes--giant circular eyes--that get me about this bird.  They are simply amazing birds to see, and I'm always impressed when I see one.  Seen up close, they are pretty large.  The owl in the above photo flew when I was quite near it (I hadn't seen it until it flew), and then landed in a tree near me to stare at me, allowing me to get these photos.

    I've seen so many illustrations of Great Horned Owls that look just like the one you photographed here, but I've never seen one that looks like that. I wonder if there is a difference between Florida and Rocky Mountain Great Horned Owls?

  2. According to Sibley, there are regional differences,and I believe ours are more colorful than those out west.
