    Thank you for this unexpected result that I want to share with the 2nd and 3rd place winners, which were my 1st and 2nd choices in the voting. I think they are equally worthy of the win, especially since they garnered more first place votes than my shot. Also, thanks to the emu's of the world. Earth is clearly a stranger and more delightful place with you in it.

    Beautifully composed emu portrait. I love how you have filled the frame and the way the body creates the background for the head. Beautiful clarity in the eye and textures throughout. In my faves.

    Well composed and shot, and from an unconventional point of view. Like the color, too. Very nice!

    Lots to love here. His/ her eye is sharp and alert looking. the plumage of the neck is wonderfully captured showing the blues as well as the scrappy longer feathers and enough body to know what we are looking at.

    Oh, that fuzz on his/her head just makes me crack up!!! Really great detail and the composition and colors are wonderful. Nature is cruel.
