Maybe I do not want to meet this huge bird up close-- his wing span being wider than I am tall-- magnificent features shown in this image bely his talents!

Lovely sharp detail Ron and great eyes. It's the rear claw that's the killing tool. Shame hadn't got lower rather than slightly looking down but still very nicely done
