Jaki, I caught the original post earlier but didn't have time to comment then due to family commitments. It is a picture that is worthyof some merit. I have tried shooting these type of birds and know how difficult it is. One requires the patience of a saint. Even when I posted some nice and close, sharp portraits of the birds, the comments generally were pretty much "Nice pics but shame about the ugly bird. :-)

Keep on posting dude.

Kind regards,

Syd

Ok Syd, tried to be evasive but you are so persuasive.:G I will leave it on the forum for the enjoyment of the viewers which I do sincerely hope you do find.

Earlier on I had said I shot this from an elevation, the angle was bad and the bird was right infront of me. Couldn't do much but crop her massively.

I loved this one because she look me straight into the eyes. There you go. Regards. Jaki

These are awesome birds Jaki. Don't think I would like to pick a fight with one.

Only problem is . . . they are not very photogenic even when you get up close. Also, they keep pacing up and down and up and down and up and down . . . it's hard to get a decent shot. Took me nearly an hour to get my shots. I had to wait for it to circumambulate the enclosure several times before it stopped to pose.



Not quite an Ostrich . . .

and when you see the size of the egg it lays, you'll realise that the term 'Ostrich' is a corruption of the original 'AwwwwwStretchhhh' :G
