Young Bald Eagle
Young Bald Eagle, 2.5″ wide by 3.75″ high
This was a rare moment I felt lucky to witness, a young Bald Eagle flying slowly over me, lit from below by the final moments of a setting sun. I was sitting on the Cutler coast as the sunset behind pointy firs to the West, and I was about to put my camera away as the light faded, I’m glad I kept it out a little longer and was able to get this shot. After drawing this Eagle a number of folks have thought it was a Turkey Vulture which it certainly is not, that said the coloring is a bit unusual due to the setting sunlight, that’s how it was in person and in the photo I took and so I kept it that way when I did my drawing.
