That is an embalmed eagle that belonged to my great grandmother. It took me some time to dust it carefully, making sure not to ruin it and then had to find the right place and angle for the shot. The photograph was taken using the macro photo programme so as to capture as much detail as possible using my Nikon Coolpix S4 camera. No zoom or flash was used.
Once transferred onto the computer I gave it a slight blue hue after desaturating it.
