Hello Gerard,
This one seems to be in a hurry to get away but you managed to get a very fine capture before it disappeared in the tall grass. An interesting bird and you show its profile very nicely here.
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Hi Gerard.

Bonjour Gérard,
A fine capture of a Kori Bustard taken from a lateral POV with excellent sharpness and lighting to make it well seen against the dry grassy BG.
Merci et bon fin de semaine,

Bonjour Gérard,
Un oiseau à l'apparence bien particulière un peu trapue. Probablement il n'est pas donné à tout le monde de le voir! Belle image naturelle le montrant dans la savane namibienne où il a la possibilité de se cacher.
De magnifiques teintes beiges et brunes.
Bonne fin de semaine

Salut Gérard

Excellente photo en close-up de cet Outarde kori
dans son mileu naturel, excellent POV pour le
montrer avec son environment dans le background,
avec une très belle lumière, TFS
