This nosey bird is an ostrich which came to say hello to us at Colchester zoo. These birds are the fastest birds at running in the world. At a zoo in Spain , I got the oppurtunity to race one. Now how weird is that?

Well done on trying something a bit different rather than get the whole bird. The background is also nicely out of focus which makes the ostrich stand out more.

Very nice capture. It is perhaps a pity that the background, which you have so admirably thrown out of focus, is so similar in colour and tone to the bird. Perhaps the best solution to that problem would be to convert the whole thing to monochrome and then use software to tone down the background and make the bird stand out more.

OTOH I like the shot very much as it is. The bird's expression is wonderful!

If it could be made more contrasty it would have more impact, but still good.
