The Boneli`s eagle is definitely my favorite raptor. Though a rare sighting in Europe, I was lucky enough to observe, study and sketch them in the wild five years long. In one of these visits I saw the female sitting in the distance against the sea. I managed to make a watercolour on location, and get some blurred video footage. I did a more detailed b/w study based on this footage years later but I didn`t find the time to create a painting until now.
