Ostrich taken at the St Louis Zoo. She was in the same yard as the Giraffes and she came up to see if I was going to feed her something. I like this shot because she looks so happy go lucky. Not sure how this will fare but it the best picture from the Zoo that day. I probably should have decreased the blue in the photo a bit and she look at me so quick I didn't get to focus on the eyes as much as I would have like but I'm running with this as it is.
