About the Image(s)

We went to Emerald Downs Racetrack again in May, and as usual, I didn't get any racetrack images I liked that much. They did have a little menagerie set up, so I got a couple of captive animal shots. I'm not sure this is interesting, but I know you will let me know. I thought he had some attitude.

He definitely has some attitude. This just made me chuckle. I suppose it's not the best composition in the world, but it works for me.   Posted: 08/07/2019 15:45:15

They are funny birds and they race in some places. I saw them in South Africa many years ago and even tried eating part of an ostrich egg. They are so hard, one can stand on them. So this picture brings back nice memories and also causes me to chuckle. I might crop a bit off the top, but otherwise it is well composed and exposed.   Posted: 08/13/2019 12:34:28
