Lammergeier

A month ago I posted my drawing of a short-toed eagle leaving the southern tip of Spain with the Moroccan coast in the distance.

This one is the other end of Spain. France begins about a hundred yards past the far side of the pond at the bottom of the picture.

Stunning work Wobbler, the attention to detail in the background is just as beautiful as the bird itself.

Thanks to you both. The background had to be one of two things, a blur or something that looked right. I decided to take the hard option. :)

I think it's a Lammergeier :)

And a rather splendid one too, impressive work.
