Default A very Difficult Choice

A local restauranteur has hired me to take some bird photos for his walls. Which of these two would be the better choice? For my part, I think that the second would give a patron the urge to "dig in".

Ah Streets - you're at it again

Congrats upon being asked to populate the restaurant walls with feathers - still upon their owners - tho I'm not sure how I or other diners would go with those same feathers on the dinner plate, unless of course they were removed for insertion into a feather duster and the remains cooked in the usual way

I would also suspect that the owner - who no doubt has seen images showing your usual quality and theme is expecting the feathered-friends to be 'virtually' alive & squawking and looking 'sharp & spunky'

I'm sure that whatever you do the result will be good & up to your usual high standards
Culinary Regards, Phil

Like the photos, but don't want to see them while having dinner.

Yes the second one is best, especially if the restaurant sells pulled pork.
This reminds me to ask....who eats Turkey Vulture at Thanksgiving time?

Bynx, it's a Black Vulture. I really never noticed one before as I only thought I was seeing Turkey Vultures. They both do well with keeping the road kill cleaned up.
