Owl close-ups, and chicks

This morning “Daddy” Great Horned Owl was in a tree at the edge of the lake near our home, allowing me the chance to take some great close-up photos

I took a couple more photos this evening at Sunset, apparently at “the changing of the guard” – Daddy watching over the chicks while Mummy spread her wings for a while. Again, you can see the fluffy chicks in the nest:
