Spoonie mount ideas

Postby ALaguaite » Tue Jan 01, 2013 7:37 pm

I shot a full plumed greenhead drake spoonie this past weekend and i am looking to mount him. I dont know if i should do him standing or flying. Anyone have any mounts or ideas for me? thanks

Spoonie mount ideas

I did mine preening its wing. I felt this pose not only showed off his wing because it was posed slightly extended, but it also shows off the unique bill and head. I don't have a pic of mine but something along these lines...

if the wings are in good shape I really like the inset pic for September in the 2012 DU calendar. I tend to like flushing or wings on the downbeat flying mounts though.

@Troutman I like that mount but i think im going to go with flying thanks for the help! Well the feathers arent messed up but he is missing one primary. I may mount him myself though Ihave done a few other mounts. @daffy We actually call them greenhead Angelina Jolies down here in Louisiana. And mallard is a mallard for us haha :lol3:
