WOW - you deserve at least double points for getting this shot! The lighting on the head is great and so is the composition showing the habitat.
I saw one in New Guinea, but didn't have my camera at hand!

good exposure and focus on this Cassowary!
perfect clarity with much details from a distance
my first encounter with this bird with much help from useful notes too!
thanks for sharing
WOW, you're really lucky to have seen this Cassowary and even more lucky to get such a perfect capture of it!! We spent hours looking for it when in Queensland but only saw it on the warning signs!! Brilliant shot, it looks really good there trying to hide at the edge of the forest. I like its pose very much and sharpness and colours are excellent too. Congratulations!!
TFS and regards, Ulla

Wonderful shot of this gorgeous looking big Cassowary in the wild. I have only seen them inside our local zoo. Nice details on its plumage and spot-on focus. Great POV and a superb composition. Kudos.

This is a wonderful shot of a very elusive bird. The light was just right to highlight the beautiful colours of the head and neck. Composition is very good showing the bird against the undergrowth and habitat.

The Cassowary is definately a unique looking bird. Thanks for sharing this shy and colourful bird in his natural enviromnet. Nicely composed with soft lighting and excellent detail. Great notes!
did you see my wollemi tree photo???
This is an amazing coup to get a shot of this bird in her natural habitat. And it is a fine shot at that! I nominate you for a photographer's bravery award because these birds can be very aggressive and don't take kindly to being disturbed. Well done!

Hi John, It was good to find such a classic specimen as this. It is an intreging large bird with a lot of lore around it for many years. Good composition with natural surroundings. One of your best. TFS. Murray
