Actually, I’ll just put it right out here for you all. My new account is babewyn! I’ll be actively posting/talking about taxidermy, bones, and hunting (and with all this of course comes dead animals, don’t feel pressured to follow if you’re uncomfortable with this though i will tag everything) though also about food, cooking, places, my pets, and animals in general.

new account

Hey!

I’m not gonna be updating and posting on this account anymore, I’ve made a new account and more personal blog where I’ll be more comfortable talking about my experiences and posting photos of my projects. If we’re in a mutual follow, feel free to ask for the account, though I’ll be re-following everyone over there so you may find it that way too haha

Project 1 - of, I hope, many. I have a lot to learn, now, to remove The Curse of Microscopic Bubbles! [Resin, Acrylic Paint, Bones (opossum, squirrel, unidentified skull)]

I was horrified when I first discovered I had an interest in taxidermy. It was so different from anything I’d explored before and seemed so… macabre.

There was a lot of ugly crying involved.

I came to accept my interest in the art long before I realized why it has a special draw for me. And, as unpopular as my feelings may be with some, it does have to do, in part, with death. I have had a lot of deaths in my life, in many forms: rejection by my family, mental health setbacks over and over, failures and hurt as I struggled to learn how to live as a human being with personal integrity. Along with the mix of biology, creativity and raw skill that taxidermy presented, I also got a message: When life thinks it’s done having its way with you, you gather up the pieces, create something wonder-full and shout back, “I’m not finished, mofo!”

Many thanks to Shadyufo Studios for supplying the “perfect” specimens for this piece!

This is absolutely awesome! Inspiring message and such creative work!

This is my friend’s new baby (eyass) northern goshawk (Accipiter gentilis).  He is a captive bred, Russian/Finnish subspecies cross and is 100% ADORABLE.  I pretty much screamed with glee every time he did anything.

My friend is a licensed falconer of the general class, so it is legal for her to own and raise this bird.  He is destined to be a hunting hawk and under my friend’s care and training, I know he’s going to be one major badass by the beginning of the hunting season this fall.  For now he’s wibbly, wobbly, and covered in the cotton.

Northern goshawks are sort of the Ferraris of the falconry world.  They are fast, extremely agile, and focused, but make a mistake and you will pay big time.  They are not forgiving birds and they require very experienced falconers to handle and train them.  I’m very excited to watch him grow and watch my friend train him.  I want a goshawk eventually, but not after a lot more experience with more forgiving raptors.  I’ve been out hunting with several goshawks, and man, it’s a wonderful and intense experience.  Their ability to move through the forest is like watching poetry in sharpy, pointy motion.
