One thought on “Harpy Eagle

  1. I am a wildlife painter too and I love what you are doing with your blog. The more we can out a face on these lovely beasts- the more people will appreciate them. Just visited the Monterey Bay Aquarium and it is educating children to respect and appreciate all living things.
