Bald Eagle

March 19, 2010

The first Bald Eagle I’d ever seen in my life…(in the wild that is)… It was pure chance (or maybe the universe working its’ magic) that we had just been talking about them, when he appeared…at first sitting on the sand bar as if to enjoy a day at the beach.  By the time I got my camera out, he had taken flight, but not before I captured this shot.  We were on the way home, nearly to our dock on the Julienton when he arrived.  The perfect end to yet another magical Blackbeard trip.

  1. I love those magical moments when we get to witness nature, doing her thing, despite the fact that we’re watching 🙂

  2. or maybe BECAUSE we’re watching 🙂

  3. You were so lucky and you have to lovely watercolor to commemorate it. How do you get the grasses so crisp and clear? They are great!

    • Thanks! I’m not quite sure…I pulled this whole series together so fast, it’s like a whirlwind…It’s the first series of pen & inks that I have executed with the intention of watercoloring them from the very beginning. The others have had watercolor added as an after thought…
