Raptors are probably my favourite animals. I think they are just amazing creatures.
I have very treasured memories of exploring the Mojave Desert some years ago, with very good company. I remember seeing the golden eagles soaring effortlessly high above ver the desert plains, riding the thermal currents and enjoying their complete mastery of their domain. I think when I get my next turn, I'll ask to come back as an eagle.
A friend of mine who saw this design said she thought it was a phoenix rather than an eagle. If you want it to be a phoenix, than it can be a phoenix for you.
