couple o' flatwing sandeels

And my attempts to duplicate it

I figured that any predator will see the pink on the nose like the original, and the mark of its snout.

under the sun lamp :

I used white kip hair for the head and then pink or lavender bucktail for the snout/collar.

The collar is pulled back and bug bonded to make the snout. eyes are added, a mark for the nostril vent and then bug bonded again.

The rest is your standard three saddle flat wing (olive over yellow over white) on a bucktail support.

next time I will refine by using the softer kip tail on the snout.
