A last minute shot. I'm not happy with some of the specular highlights but this will have to do. Nothing too complicated. Just gathered some stuff from the kitchen cabinet and created the turkey. I used some rubber bands to keep the tea strainer open and to attach it to the whisk. I also used a small clamp to hold the whisk inside the strainer. The feathers is just another strainer opened up.

Love the creativity. Amazed by 2 things: that you have 2 of those nasty steamer colanders intact and that only one comment said it was too dark, because I reap tons of darkness opprobrium, so to speak, on my stuff.

Lol. Very well done. A hard image to pull off because of the many objects, yet you did a wonderful job and those sepia tones bring out all the charm of the perforations. Congratulations on your top ten finish.
