Golden Eagle Wildlife Painting

The Golden Eagle is Scotland’s national bird, and I’ve seen them only on 3 occasions – in a tree, sitting just staring down, soaring way off in the distance, and, amazingly, flying along side the car, and then across the road in front of us (it was a young bird).

I really don’t think I’ve done this stunning bird justice. The background is all wrong to start with, it’s too stationary and I want to see more of the eagle. But…

…It just means I have an excuse, a good one, to do another. I’ll let you know when I do.
