This is my first foray into larger needle felting. I made it for a lovely Craftster-chica in exchange for some cool craft books. It's over a metal armature, which i'm not sure really helped me other than make the beak magnetic, which was something i really wanted. He has his on little tiny rockfish(stripped bass) that he can have for dinner, or drop on people's heads. The nest is fairly acurate to actual osprey nests (i think) which look like a gigantic jumble of driftwood and branches. My boyfriend was kind and took the pictures for me, but wasn't able to get the close up detail of wings and tail. Overall, i'm pretty happy with it, though i made the legs too long and i'm really NOT happy at all with the claws/talons. next time maybe. anyhow. here are pics.
