While in Florida I had an opportunity to photograph a Great Horned Owl nest located in St. Cloud. The nest itself is based on a huge oak tree draped in Spanish Moss. I was told that the male Great Horned is usually hanging around in the upper parts of the tree mostly behind the moss and while I did not get see him I did get some shots of her caring for the eggs on the nest which is what I set out to originally accomplish.
