First place - We love this photo! We all would have loved to have been there to witness this ourselves. Everything from the ostriches, the light, the water, the details in the caption that you got make it a fantastic photo. The way the ostrich seems to be happy made us all smile. Second place - Nice different moment. It’s a relatively clean photo (with exception to the coat at the bottom right). Third place - Funny photo of Texas State Fair prep. Clearly the photographer had some foresight for the humorous moment.
