A man can be an artist with anything. Food, whatever. Creasey's art is death, and he's about to paint his masterpiece.

My daughter is intensely interested in taxidermy. I wouldn't be surprised to find out it is her calling in life. She is very passionate about it.

She says your stuff is awesome!

Hey Ron Questions,
Do you do fish?
Are they easier or more difficult than birds/animals.
anything you hate doing, love doing?
I would assume larger things bring you more $.
does doing someones pet creep you out or is it all just work for ya?
Nice work by the way!

Cool MM.!.
And Tad, yes i do fish- birds, reptiles, mammals and pets. Pets are a bit different and id never do my own.. But money is money and customers are always right! Some of my favorite are specimens like ive been doing for the Tahoe Institute of Natual science- protected species arent that often done,, and i love da boids! But mammals fish are good too! My least favorite is snakes. Just because..

Ha,that never occurred to me given yer locale. I saw the thingie on the end of the bill and just thought it was the ring on the Ring-billed. Now that I look closer i can see it is that 'thingie'. Being an Alaskan I never paid no mind to juvie jaegers as there was always plenty of adults to ogle. :-). So did this one show up in yer hood?

That jaeger washed up on the beach at Sand Harbor, on the east shore of Lake Tahoe, back in August of 1999. Starved on migration, apparently. It's been frozen ever since, passed through a few different hands, and now, finally, we'll be able to display it thanks to Ron's skills and artistry (and rehydration secrets)!

BTW, Tahoe probably gets a couple jaegers every fall, but they're pretty rare and it takes certain weather conditions to expect to see them.

Actually, I look at it as the art of bringing something that was dead, back to life!

BTW, awesome thread, and "art"!!!

thats what i TRY for Splitter- but ma nature is an extremely hard match 100%! Ill never get there but ill never stop trying!

And Neebs, yes, the owl was a road killed bird that was recovered by Will.


edit: Will starvation is an excellent guess- the bird was VERY thin breast all but gone even considering the freeze dry shrinkage..
