    Hi! 8)

    I just can't believe all that stuff you posted last couple of weeks!!! Incredible work of art! I really mean that....if those birds get any better they surely can fly then! Its enormous pile of inspiration you all give here to us others in taxidermy field and also make us work and try better and better products all the time! I think we all remember the time when mounts were hit to the little piece of 2X4 and that's it. It's really nice to see that habitats are more important now and taxidermists really put a thought for the habitat.... Of course the BIRD is still the main object,but I surely enjoy the habitat also!!

    Whoa...it wasn't easy to choose only one that really hit my eye. There were many mounts that I really enjoyed and mounts that make me feel happy to be a taxidermist! But somehow these two were a bit more to catch my eye than the others...

    From first week I have chosen a mount by erik1! CONGRATS!!!! This is really a nice mount of Harlequin and I really like the seashore basework!! Stunning piece in every aspect! Tastefull mount to say least!!

    From second week I've chosen (again) a work of Falco! CONGRATS!!! Have to say that Falco's skills in raptors are very high class!! And once again the basework is also stunning and tells you many things about the bird! :)

    Have a nice couple of weeks and hope you all enjoy again with me here in BotW!!!! :D ;)

    All the best... JP

    Yeah,I know but I really don't care WHO has mounted the piece,I just look the mount! My choise's would be exactly the same if I don't see the names who has send the picture's... I still like to say that I'm not favoring anybody,I just pick the mount I like most of ALL those fine,impressive mounts!!!

    Incredible mount Mike!
