I missed it! Describing the image, I did not take into account one of the most important aspects of the composition -- the Antenae, how they are extending into the eagle's shadow, and the consciousness metaphors posed by the butterfly (usually a symbol of the soul, for heaven's sake!).

The image suggested to me the battle of dark and light forces, but I didn't think about the limiting "shadow" cast by self-negativity over a soul's hankering for free flight.

I love Margarete Petersen's twist, how the "stealth" aspect of the traditional thief card shows up here in the looming shadow of a partly-unseen predator.
