The reverse image by Canadian artist Claudio D’Angelo features a Bald Eagle just having caught a fish. In the lower left side of the image, the water splashes high as the eagle wrenches the fish from its watery home. The eagle dominates the image, its stunning wings spread wide as it is viewed in full-body profile from its right side. Here we see the Bald Eagle’s characteristic dark body and wings, white head and tail, and powerful legs and talons. In the distant background, a rocky point dotted with sparse conifers reaches out into the water, showcasing the Bald Eagle’s preference for isolated waterside habitats.
