First off, they're HUGE. To give you an idea, here's a picture I borrowed from the blog Bill of the Birds: **Image Deleted**
And that's not even a big one. The female on the show last night flew past a man and her wingspan had to be close to 7 feet. She blotted him out entirely. Wow.
Anyway, near the end of the show, there was this one shot of the immature male, where he looked directly at the camera, that will stay with me a while. Hauntingly beautiful. In fact, I think he needs a story of his own. I could totally imagine him shape-shifting into a man and sweeping some lucky gal off her feet. If I wrote paranormal romance, I would totally do that. Since I don't, feel free to snatch the idea and make it your own.
Inspiration comes in so many funny ways. Anything odd inspire you lately?
