I've never seen young ostrich :-) Cute 'little' bird. I like colouration on its neck and head. Good shot.

Oulik maat, pure kuiken! Good DOF and good colour, I like the composure of the shot, this Chic has an attitude. The head is maybe a bit dark with light on the back, meaning you loose light on the eye. But this chic's head is not big so it could be very tricky. Great shot Japie

Good capture Japie the attitude shows through well, in his looking around at all he surveys, Callie's trick of using infill flash would of lit the eye and shaded head a treat

Awww, Ostrich burgers anyone? Very nice Japie. Certainly more cuteness that ass licking :-). Great shot and I'm amazed at how different in colouration the young ones are compared to adults. I guess it must be for camouflage? Well done.

Now this is a cocky little fella! I can see that he will not be frightend by you. Nice shot Japie, the compo is fine great DOF and super subject. TFS.
Japie, beautiful your small ostrich. I wish her a long life in this reserve.
I grew near a Zoo. Would need that I return to it one day, not to live there but to take photos :).
Good shot and an instructive note.

Pragtige baba vollie. They always remind me of hegehogs - the same spiny, pricky appearance. Nice compo too. I see the red dust has already covered her/him.
Geniet die Kaap! Don't ruin the friendship by shooting more Mugshots in Houtbay!

Your photo reminds me of the days when we were running around like mad in the veld on our farm, scooping up ostrich chicks.
Unfortunately they panicked easily and break their legs....
Thanks for sharing your work, and I have added your photo to my new theme "Juveniles"
