Pond at Battle Point Park

"Pond at Battle Point Park", 8 x 10 in, Oil on Museum Board

I painted this a couple of days ago with a group of artists from Plein Air Washington at Battle Point Park on Bainbridge Island. We painted at the pond on the north perimeter of the park. At one point, a bald eagle swept down to this muddy pond and scooped with its claws a very large fish. We have a bald eagle family in the cove here in Olympia, but I've never seen that before, and gives exacting meaning to the term "eagle eyes." I looked it up and discovered that "eagles and other birds of prey can see four to five times farther than the average human can, meaning they have 20/5 or 20/4 vision under ideal viewing conditions."
