Today I took my kids to a pond I frequent during my daily walks. We were sitting there building little boats with twigs and leafs when, all of a sudden, two bald eagles descended, seemingly, out of nowhere. And *SPLASH* they crashed repeatedly, digging their talons into the water. After a few attempts they each got their grub for the day and took off.
My kids were thrilled. It was their first time seeing the eagles so close. And delightful for me to see the spectacular acrobatic display. Such an awesome bird.
I didn’t have my camera with me so I drew this sketch just now while it’s still fresh in my mind.
The encounters with these bald eagles have been on the increase and part of me feels like they’re trying to tell me something. I just hope making this armature has something to do with it.
