    I had to walk away from grooming. My eyes started getting blurry from all the breast feather bars.

    Working on Victorian style display with African birds . The mural will be there and more birds after my trip to Tanzania
     
  12. Looks good DL, I coul see going cross eyed after working on him for a bit.

    Igor, that scene is stunning. I think it would be great to see more displays like that.

    I don't know how you guys do these little guys. I guess it's all about repetition. This is the smallest I've done. It's a Western kingbird. What I find challenging is to get proper grooming when the feathers are mostly the same color. Birds with different markings on their feathers seem easier . Snow geese also give me fits trying to see each individual feather in an all white bird.

    Didn´t have a look so often the last time but recognized some beautiful mounts today.
    Dave, nice job on your owl and I believe you, that you had problems with your eyes
    Igor, that scene is fantastic and I am very sorry, that I am not able to see all the details on each bird
    LTB, welcome to the forum and great start with a beautiful drake common pochard, they are wintering in my hunting area not every year but I am very happy for each one I can get on the hunt,

  19. Thanks Rainer, Florian and Wildthings, common pochards and tufted ducks are one of my favorite to mount ;D
     
  20. I was almost happy with this one. Especially since it was hammered. [​IMG]
