    Here is a pic without the flash. It is still very yellow but you can see no detail in the feathers. My camera is trash in making pictures without flash. ::)

    Thank you Nina. What I still not understand is that in the pic without the flash it was a sunny day and the room was full of good sunlight. (not directly on the mount) When I took the pic it looked great on the camera display, but once it was on the laptop it looked way to dark. I think I have to change some camera settings, but I'm not too good at that. ::) :-[

    That's a great looking pheasant F'nF' well done, I believe looking at those beautiful roosters I shot as a youngster was what got me started in taxidermy, I just hated tearing them apart to eat.

    Here are 3 hazel grouse that I got gifted from Rai Red from Germany. They came salted and wet to me and I never did such birds (salted ones).
    Thank you Rainer for the beautiful birds. The one with the birch tree is my personal bird, it will stay with me and never be sold.

    ...and the new favourite of my collection. The leaves are real. I dried them last fall and coated them in wood glue, now they are flexible and sturdy enough to not break anymore. The colour is original as well.
