Nicely rendered - I love that quirky expression, particularly on the last image. They remind me of our emus here, native to Australia - Well Done !

Thanks Michael, Hardmoney and Lisa! Years ago I even watched a few ostriches being ridden - can only do that with the tame ones.

Each of these is truly a gem! They make me smile - you've conveyed both the beauty and the humor of these unusual birds in your works. Well done!
