I was at the Greater Vancouver Zoo last week and spent some time playing with this ostrich. He was quite accomodating and quite the ham.

Hi Steve,

I've posted a workshop version of this. I found that the picture was quite underexposed on the face. Did you use fill in flash or not? Certainly with the bright background I think fill in flash would have been essential. In any case in the workshop I've recovered quite a lot of detail in the face. Let me know what you think.

As for the photo itself, I love the expression on his face.
