I like your explanation for the red on this Ostrich. When I shoot in the Lion and Rhine, The lions are red, the Rhinos are red, the Eland are red , Zebra are red EVERYTHING is RED!! I have one hell of a time adjusting tones to compensate for this. This is a lovely shot of this Ostridge (The plumage is so black, I thought it was a male) - Lovely Shot.

Bonito ejemplar Callie.
Muy buen encuadre, bonitos colores (aunque las plumas del ave parecen un poco saturadas).
Pretty specimen Callie.
Very good frame, pretty colors (although the feather of the bird seem a little saturated). Excellent capture!

Yes, the posture of the ostrich is indeed reminiscent of ballet dancing ;-) Great capture Callie that well shows the voluminous expansion of this unique bird, and indeed a look that seems to suggest displeasure. Excellent color and light in this one, really nice.

Bring out the Moulin Rouge ensemble ;-))
Beautiful colours and details. Usually, I don't fancy rump shots, but it works well here ;-)
He he, when i was in South Africa, i took a picture of an Ostrich...then i came back hoem and developed my photos...when i looked at them i was wondering...what is my collegue Eva doign in the bushes hehe. Need i say that the photo was NO GOOD he he. I'll blame the fact that i had to borrow the camera and that it was the only camera i had held in my hands for about 10 years. I think i have learnbed since then, i am stilll learning and one day, i hoep to take an equally splendid picture of thsi magificant bird. ;) Sorry about the rambeilng, just came to think of that and it made me smile a bit here in the midle of the night.
The shot is great.Teh feathers are wll excanturared but he head is a bit out of focus. It is moving so it isn't very strange that it is. Woudl a smaller apparature help maybe? Just great Callie. :-D

Good composition, Callie. I like the four layers of colour, which contrast nicely with the Ostrich. Excellent detail. Well captured.

She surely is a beauty Callie. Very nice composition which gives her some space to move into. The colours are very nice - I never noticed that the feathers on the wings were coloured. I love her pose too.
