A Bald Eagle's Eye

A raptor’s ability to spot prey from a great distance, its superior depth perception and rapid focusing all contribute to its skill at catching unsuspecting prey on land, in the air or in the water.

Considering the size of their heads, raptor eyes are quite large compared to those of other birds.  They are fascinating subjects to draw.  These drawings were made with colored pencils.
