Golden Eagle winning UK Bird Taxidermy Competition 2015
I was lucky enough to get an eagle in very good condition, mostly falconers birds are flown and have some damage ti there primary and tail feathers this would make a taxidermy flying pose of an eagle not viable. So the challenge was on to try and recreate the splendour of these beautiful birds as a taxidermy mount.
I like to start with an idea or good reference photo and tweak the idea until I feel it may work as a taxidermy piece.
