The title of this image coencides beautifuly with this challenge, in my opinion. I believe this image would score potentially higher if the majority of the detail hadn't been lost in the feathers. Aside from that I believe this is a great image, and the close crop creates a mystery, which would intrigue potential visitors,thus, promoting your zoo. 9

At first I thought it was a fish. Now, I think it's a bird. I'm pretty sure it's a bird. I like the close-up and I think it's probably the only one in the challenge. Nice to see something different. Excellent focus.

This is beautiful. The composition and color control really make this, and your text is tasteful rather than a distraction.
