This actually reminds me of a photo I've seen with an emu smoking a joint (photoshopped of course). Good work. Is it supposed to be an emu or an ostrich?

Thank you Carina! Yes, he has really a charming expression Laughing out loud

I don't know why, but this image is greatly amusing me.

It's propably his bored "don't dare to annoy me" look he has in his eye!

Hehe! This is awesome! But...I don't know why he is upset..I kinda like his hair do, but it's a good excuse, isn't it? Wink Very well done!

Great idea. Really funny and well executed!!!!

rita's picture

AWWW Rafal, thank you so much. This compliment really means a lot to me! I thought his expression just would fit to something "weird"

mcf's picture

There is something you don't see every day Smile Love the originality and the expression on the bird's "face", excellent!
