Eagle “Take two”

After a closer look at yesterday’s eagle, I decided to try again, as it just needed to resonate a little more. My inspiration for him came from visiting a wildlife sanctuary on our New South Wales South Coast. There he was in his large, but definitely not large enough enclosure perched up high looking rather sad. I took several photos through the cage and rediscovered them the other day.

My reference photo wasn’t very clear. I drew him, then started browsing through numerous web images looking for similarities, comparing features and making minor adjustments. I am much happier with this new one:

  1. Extraordinary! There was once a time where on every Sunday on our way church, we’d see an eagle flying about the bridge we cross. Sadly s/he has since disappeared, but was an amazing sight at the time!
