Ostrich in long grass

The continuing experimentation with digital image processing.   I did both a monochrome version and a colour version of this image and liked both.  Then I decided to blend the two effects and arrived at a muted colour effect which I think ends up being pleasing and subtle. Ostrich in tall grass, Tanzania.
