So, here is my fourth entry to my Zoo series.

Emu is a very funny bird to photograph!

While photoraphing it, I had to fully zoom in and take the objective very close to have a big capture of its head and achieve a shallower DOF.
The funny part was that I thought: "What if this bird will decide that the lens looks like something delicious!"
Then I quickly passed over to my next "victim to shoot" at.

Have a nice day!

Wooow ...Lovely colours and details. Nice POV and the texture of beak. Very well done. Like your crop on the gaze.

Nice shot Garo, close and have that great focus and sharpness. Framing and composition/cropping are very effective. TFS - Sam.

What a wonderfull shot and what a wonderfull bird!!
These eyes are so strange to us.
Nice framing.
I like it very much.

Great details, I like the crop.


Hi Garo

It looks like an emu to me. Magnificent use of a shallow dof, to isolate, & emphasize detail. Sharpness is superb, & complimented by the good color, lighting, & saturation. Good work!

Wow. Another great one. Very nice photo. Intense eyes. Nice and sharp with good DOF and colors. Very nice photo. JP

Did emu eat everything like his big cousin :o)For me a know the meat of emu is tastefull! And the picture is funny. Good point of view of the eyes.
Each time i'm a little surprised about the contrast! It have a rude apparence if you look the beak. but the eyes look so different form the rest by his color.
Imagine the eyes were just black... :o)

Very impressive picture, the colors and the sharpness are amazing, looks alive!
Best regards

wow, nice mcaro shot to the eyes, beatiful tone, nice compo, sharp and nice DOF. regards, regi.

bravo! je trouve que cette photo est très drole! les yeux d'une autruche sont toujours très droles! et le choix du format paysage et une très bonne idée!

Waahooo, twice !
The crop is perfect like the panther's picture ;)
There a lot of details in this one. The look of this Emu is very impressive almost frightening. Hopefully they are cool usually :)
Good blur in the background.
Best regards.
