Wow, stunning work for sure!

I look back over the last 20-30 years and taxidermy has gone way over the top, pure art and immense talent.

As a raptor ecologist i'm very critical of taxidermy for birds of prey .... your work is by far the most stunning i've ever seen on raptors ... you are not only an amazing artist but a student of animal behaviour ... my hat is tipped to you sir.

Yup, don't think I've ever seen nicer birds.

Wow! Excellent work. Other posters are right the birds are especially outstanding.
