"Wings of Gold"

How majestic is the golden eagle! He is larger than the bald eagle with a wing span up to 7 feet. While in the Yellowstone National Park, we rounded a curve overlooking a steep cliff and suddenly had to stop because this golden eagle flew around that curve and straight in front of our van. His back was facing us and the sun brillantly shown on the back of his outstretched wings, turning them to a beautiful bronze. My heart leaped at the sight. The incident had to be memorized because it occurred too quickly to grab a camera. This is another study in the series "Birds of Prey." It is an oil on canvas, 8 x 10" in size.
