Hollow Emu Flatwing

Emu feathers are very mobile and have a strong stem allowing them various applications to flies.  Before dying some I tried a neutral (natural?) colour scheme.

Tail - grey bucktail, two emu feathers, and a black saddle hackle tied in flat.
Body - series of sparse grey and black (on top) bucktail with UV Angelina.
Gill collar - small red ostrich hackle.
Eyes - 3D epoxy.
