very lively capture of this strong big bird. I like its dark feathers as it stands out beautifully against the soft brown grassland.
You note is very informative.
Beautiful bird well seen in good details.

Fine shot of this Ostrich. Its not easy to getthe exposure right with these guys, especially on a sunny day, but yours is very good. Even though I've seen them in the zoo, their size surprised me in the wild.

Fantastic capture Anna of this powerful and gorgeous ostrich. The stature of the bird standing proudly between its warm natural habitat. Good point of view. Good sharpness and detail. Bravo!

La Avestruz posa elegentemente para Tu camara como quriendo presumir todos sus atributos que por cierto son adorables.
La imagen muy bien lograda, desde un angulo ideal, la iluminacion y nitidez de alto nivel.
Todas las fotos que has logrado en el Parque Kruger son verdaderamente bellas, y las notas escritas nos dejan muy buenas enseñanzas.
Gracias por compartir Anna.

Très belle publication dans laquelle le sujet est bien valorisé dans son environnement par une bonne maitrise de la lumière et une très bonne profondeur de champ.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Great capture under right exposure
But, strange the head and also the neck look small compare with the body, maybe the angle of the POV gives this impression ?

Great shot, Anna! Looks as if the bird is posing especially for you. It would have been the perfect shot if you could get more feather detail in the black areas!
Fascinating to see the red face and legs of the ostrich male, indicating he is ready to mate.
Thank you so much for adding me to your favorite members. Very kind of you.

Awesome capture of this huge beauty, the action has been nicely frozen. The lighting seems quite weak here (a cloudy day?), but looks well managed. Nicely captured MF!
TFS and have a nice night!

What a beautiful image of this stately looking ostrich. My brother when he was in Kenya said he was so impressed with these birds, the size and speed he said was incredible. I have a question have you ever eaten ostrich, I hear it is quite good. Thanks for showing me South Africa Anna.
PS how is grandma and grandpa little bundle of joy?

another great capture from you, i am always impressed from this big birds, but i have never see them in the wild, this image is well composed and well framed with wonderful sharpness and fine POV
TFS and have a good night

I can definitely say we don't have anything like this here in our neck of the woods. The Ostrich is such an awesome looking bird with it's huge muscular legs, long neck and stout body.
I can't imagine living in an area that has birds that could probably kill you if they decided to kick you. You have done a fine job of capturing this fellow as he stands proudly for the camera. Overall a wonderful photo of an interesting subject, with excellent qualities. Well done!!

Bella imagen de esta especie de aveztruz, con esa cara tan original que pone cuando se acerca. Contrastes un poco justo con ese fondo claro, pero realzado por esas plantas delanteras verdes. Un POV excelente.
Un saludo de Antonio

Well detailed shot of the ostrich Anna..
I like the natural habitat/terrain & green leaves I see near the bird.
Looks like a very arid environment.
Merry Christmas to you both!

This is a neat image of the "Daddy long-legs" of the birding world. The moment when one
justly becomes aware of just how big this bird really is, is when you're right next to it and
you have to look up into those beautiful big eyes. Although this one was captured from
a slightly raised vantage point which maybe makes the bird look less impressive is size.
This was because at that spot the asphalt road is raised ±1m higher than the surrounding
plains and therefore it looks like you captured this image at almost eye level with the bird.
Given the cloudy conditions you managed to grab a wonderful shot of the bird, full of clear
detail of the plumage and with a very accurate colour rendition of the moment. I know it to
be so, because I was there with you. The exact lovely bluish cast on those black feathers
was provided there courtesy of nature itself. So, why would you want to change it?
Well done and TFS.
Take care and have a great weekend.

For such a long detailed NOTE, my appreciation and regards and species like this we don't have but here life is much in hazard that if could safe us from ground then there be a dron attack from air, as these birds are lucky that these in safe captivity, beautiful shot, TFS.
