    holy smokes. First let me say sorry for the delay. Second. That I type over 100 wpm but because my Internet has been delayed. I'm doing this from my iPad. So it's excruciating having to finger type so slow. and finally I have no idea how to post photos from my iPad. So any help would be great. While I'm floundering trying to figure it out. A little update

    Ok I've done an intro before so will just bring everyone up to speed. I haven't been around much lately because I find myself in the very peculiar position of recently becoming a single father. Selling of the house. Buying and moving. Lightening the blow to my precious little girls with a surprise trip to disneyland. I've been a busy bee. I have however continued to sneak online here and there to sneak a peak at all the beautiful work. I'm just sorry I haven't been able to participate. With that said. Let's make this a great next two weeks. It's a new beginning for me and cause to look forward and celebrate. What better way than to share our common love of birds. I'll be getting Internet by Wednesday. Until then I'll see what I can figure out with my iPad. Until then please start sharing Can't wait to see what you all post as the last few months have been fantastic

    Hey. I think I got it. Sadly I worked really hard on these and all I can do is take a photo from my iPad OF the pictures on my computer screen. Sorry for all the glare and reflections. I'm a desperate man. Haha

    Gonna experiment my preview option isn't working

    Hey spencer. Great mallard pair. I think it's easy to take them for granted as they are so common. But the reality is they are stunning birds. Your work is incredibly smooth. Do you calk or pin your wing webs? Just asking cause anatomically they are right on the mark. I use wire frame so struggle with flying mounts and wing webs :eek:

    I love this entire website, so if anything is late it is not a problem for me. This website is my little piece of heaven away from work. I am a meat cutter by trade.

    Popeye. Love your handle. Popeye is a childhood favorite. You said first standing mount? Literally your first duck huh. Fantastic job. Seems like the last few years (10?) people's "firsts" are so much better than the "firsts" from my day. Excellent job

    Shawn. I've said it in the past. I wasn't a dead mount fan for the longest time but they've come so far in recent years I've become a huge fan. Beautiful work. I've long wanted to do a mount of all the Pochards. Well done. Did you make your own woodbackground?

    Keep em commin guys and gals. Bird stuffer. Kma. Wolfgang. Jeremy. Igor ??? Come on guys. Help a brotha out ;)

    Did this for a local nature center. Outside of my comfort zone. But with JBIRD hosting, why not. Cool different birds Jeff[​IMG]

    Jeff, great to see you hosting and posting some cool birds. Nice mounts everyone. Love that hawk.
    My phone does not let me post any pictures for a long time. Jeff could you post a couple of my birds if I email you a picture?

    Jeff, glad to have you hosting once again. I am always amazed to see all the cool birds you get to mount. I will show my support with a pair of dead mount pheasants. A great week to all and keep the posts coming, Paul.
