Talulah Taxidermy Takes…

Inside the Talulah Gorge Information Center, there was a world of stuffed specimens. Although creepy, I was fascinated by their presence. They were also extremely willing to pose! HA. I found them each stunning for different reasons and, so, I desired to photograph them individually. While observing each through my lens, I found myself wondering what their lives were like and what adventures they went on while alive. How did they end up as stuffed documents in the Talulah Gorge museum? Curious. Taxidermy is very curious, indeed. 🙂

  1. Great photos Polly – I commend you on the calming effect you must have had on these animals to keep them still during the photo session ! 🙂

  2. Years ago, my (now ex) husband found a beautiful great horned owl by the side of the road. It was very much alive, but unable to fly. So, he brought it home in a cardboard box and a friend of his took the owl to a special place in PA for injured birds. We later heard that the owl was old and sick, not injured, and there was no hope for recovery. It is now one of the beautiful stuffed birds on display somewhere… I like to think that it lived a good life. Perhaps each of the creatures you photographed have a simular tale.

Let me know what you are thinking :)
