These, as well as other birds of prey, have always fascinated people for thousands of years. They always have that majestic posture as well as having mastery of the wing; being able to wing their way into the heavens with absolute ease.
The eagles also have the sharpest of eyes which are said to be 4 to 8 times sharper than a human's eye. The internal shape of the eyeball is much different to our eyes and because of this, they say that the eagles are able to spot a rabbit at a distance of 3.5 km (2 miles) - very impressive, I would say! The protruding eyebrow tends to give it a very fierce look but it actually acts, among others, as a sun visor.
The term "eagle-eyed" come from the eagle's ability to pick out prey, even if they try to hide themselves. Let's train ourselves to be "eagle-eyed" in art! Observation is the name of the game.
