Tag: purple silk
Tail: dyed purple Amherst crest topped with a king fisher feather
Body: two colors of purple seal with gadwall started at the second turn of ribbing
Rib: fly pearl Mylar followed by oval tinsel
Collar: dyed purple pheasant rump followed by a few turns of purple dyed guinea

What's the big deal? It's basically just a grape skinny pancake... I love the "doted lateral line" effect in the wing. It basically looks like a bullseye that's at least as eye catching as Jungle cock if not moreso due to its length. "bite here":thumb:
