This week’s MotD theme: The Eyes Have It
Belgium nature photographer, Lucy, of Evey-Eyes, captured this beautiful photo of bald eagle, Taïga. Such intense and magnificent eyes against the snowy whiteness of its feathers…it paints quite a work of art.
Eagles, like all birds, have color vision. An eagle’s eye is almost as large as a human’s, but its sharpness is at least four times that of a person with perfect vision. The eagle can probably identify a rabbit moving almost a mile away. That means that an eagle flying at an altitude of 1000 feet over open country could spot prey over an area of almost 3 square miles from a fixed position.

Inspiration for Today
From the Merriam-Webster Dictionary site about the term “eagle eye”:
: eyes that watch or look carefully and see or notice many things
: an unusually good ability to see or notice things
: close watch
With the precision of an eagle’s eye, Lucy’s eagle encourages us to observe our thoughts; for what we perceive to be going on outside of us often comes from what perspective we view it.
