    Great Mallards I like that pose also . . . I 'm not sure but I maybe growing a slight hatred for these things. Is it me or is there no division between the fat stopping and the skin starting. Luckily I like to sew. Not o_O

    I just skinned and fleshed a mallard and I agree with you. By the time the fat is removed there seems to be no skin left. Especialy back of the legs in the tail area. I then did a Redhead, big difference, much easier.

    Probably got to be one of the toughest areas on a bird to remove fat without causing a problem ... Seems like they're all the same cus those are the areas I have trouble w/ more often , especially when they have big BB holes .... But I hear Ya , same thing I had 3 divers to work on and didn't even worry bout tearing , they're tough skins but thats about the only thing I like about a diver they stink ...

    Thank you GotHonks. I really enjoy doing them! Here's another picture of it rotated correctly. My background clutter is much more cluttered than Brooke's IMG_2685.jpg

    Not really...I just use portrait mode so my messy background is blurred out.
