I loved enlarging it to see its face! I'm wondering what it's thinking - maybe "I think somebody needs to do a little pond maintenance." :)
Wonderful capture.

Is that really a REAL ostrich? It looks just like a sculpture. Great shot!

Carolyn Ford said...

Yes! This guy is very real! It tried to peck at us through the fence just before getting a drink.

Great photo, he seems to be enjoying the fountain. Excellent capture, but is this an ostrich or an emu?

Carolyn, this is not an ostrich, but anemu. It is a kind of ostrich which lives in Australi.
