[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Me and my friends were on our way to Habesor National park, when we spotted an Ostrich farm..."let's stop for five minutes for some quick takes" we thought at the start, not appreciating the amount of game you can "play" with these cute and weird birds...THis one, for example, was taken among many others and was shot at a very very close distance! Lucky for me, the Ostrich didn't hit my polarizer...

Hello Chen, I love this shot! I do like close up action showing the subjects personality, this one is great. They are quite aggressive. It is nice and sharp with wonderful detail on the eyes and lashes. Nice exposure and works very well in BW.
