Sometimes you just happen to be in the right place at the right time. I was lined up and focused on the Ostrich ready to take a close up of his head, when suddenly he did this...

sorry about the logo ... but...

Miles....what a wonderfully timed photograph...these birds can be quite mean....while visiting the St. Louis zoo, one of these birds bite me on my arm.....and it wasn't pleasant......

Fabulous shot Miles, you were very brave getting so close as I know how nasty they can be.

It's a shame about the logo, but I do understand the reason behind it.
