Only time I have ever seen one of these birds in the wild and had a few seconds only to get the snap as it walked off.

Taken in the Kruger Park last year.

Very nice. I love the way you were able to catch his head sideways. Unique moment and a beautifull picture! Compliments Arjuna.

Hi Tim,
very nice capture, I like how the bird glances backwards and gives you such a nice profile.
Very well composed the colors and lighting give you a wonderful BG ambiance.

Cool shot, Tim.
I like reddish atmosphere and birds pose.

Hi Tim,
Tight cropping southwards is the nit.
But..very moody image; appreciate the light, the colours,...

Hi, Tim.
Interesting bird not so easy to photograph. Usually same color as surroundings. You have got here very nice light. Good pose also.

Superb photo of this beautiful Kori Bustard. The pose of the bird, together with the wonderful scenery and shadows makes for a wonderful capture here! Just really very nice.

Hello Tim!
Very interesting composition with nice, warm colours and very interesting object :)
I like DOF and POV too.
The only thing I would like to add is the latin name of the species and maybe a few words about it :)
