Default Nairobi National Park

Took the kids to the park to see if I have "eye" for photos back...looks like I'm struggling yet.

The Ostrich taken with Tcon 17.

Auto PP on picnic and small cropping.

We did see a lone lioness on the road home, but I wasn't inspired to take "butt shots".

They are called hartebeasts...

Actually quite tasty when barbequed...

Cool looking critters in #2. Never can have to many "butt shots".

Great to see more shots of your local wildlife.

Looks like the hartebeast on the right can read your mind - barbeque! EEK!

Thanks everyone...The ostrich was a tricky one, I had the Tcon attached and was in the driving seat as well...and the ostrich was jumpy!

You can see all the construction going on in the background. Nairobi Nat Park is unique...as its in the middle of the city.
