While travelling down east in the Maritimes, I saw many Bald Eagles in flight and perched in trees. Along the mountainous Cabot Trail and on a boat tour in the Atlantic I was able to take many photographic references from various heights and angles. The tour guide would throw out fish for the eagles to swoop down and snatch with their sharp talons. Eagles have incredible vision, four times the sharpness of humans, able to see prey with clarity from a couple kilometers away. They soar high above forests and large bodies of water, overseeing all the land and animals below. For this composition, I used the dark underside of the wing merely as a background, intentionally highlighting the face as the focal point rather than emphasizing the wingspan as many other artists have already done.
