very pretty, but taking a picture of a duck strap is cheating. Next time try mounting them please! :mad:

Very nice...the Lucy with the band really pulls that mount all together. I'm a huge fan of DM and that is a damn good one.

Congrats :thumbsup:

I have a soft spot for dead mounts, and that's a beauty! :thumbsup:

Nice job.

Not to be a prick, but something is off, color-wise, with the bills. The yellow is almost too yellow.

not all mallards bills are the exact same yellow, especially late season birds... color perfectly matches the color they were when i shot em.

Bills have different colors depending on time of year, locale, and feed sources. I've shot mallards with varying colors of bills all within a single valley based on what the bird was eating.
