Simply stunning Lillian. I've got a way to go to reach your standards. This is just amazing. The colour and detail is awesome.
Get yourself better, my mum suffers from vertigo and it's not pleasant. Would send you a big get well hug but don't want to pass on my cold Tongue so I've given you my UA instead GrinGrin

Oh, For Goodness Sake, Lillian, this is the finest Golden Eagle portrait in existence..!
Wow, Wow and Wow again!
I am so pleased I joined epz, it's a Privelege to see imagery such as this.
Really sorry to hear you are a migrane sufferer. My wife is too & its a miserable time when it happens.
I shall be having serious words with The Almighty when I get 'upstairs' - there's a lot of faults with his design of the human race...Smile

Superb capture of a very remarkable bird.

I sympathize and empathize re. horrid vertigo gal.
I read recently you should try to look round and gently move as it helps
the brain adjust and correct ..
Be all well soon.
