A great close-up.
Very good composition and details.
That said, I look for, but can't find cleverness in its eyes ;-)!
Very good job

sacrée photo Callie.
cadrage tres original. DOF idéale.
le note est aussi tres bonne
This could have been a petrol pump attendant looking through window "Leaded or unleaded meneer?" When we spoke you mentioned about impact, and this shot has lots of it! Great DOF and sharpness and this babe withthe Sandton eyes.

Great picture with very good details, excellent exposure.
By the way 600 mm on the D70 is about 900 mm !!! because of the sensor factor.

Callie I love the way she enters the frame and snakes her way across the picture to look out at us so personally.

Wonderful shot, Callie. Perfect "in-camera-cropping" to have this distinctive posing of the ostrich's head in your frame. I like how the sunlight enhances the details of the plumage, and the posing has something funny and at the same time endearing to it. Very nice.

Great framing! I love how her neck and head come from an unexpected angle. Terrific shot and description, too.

nice image, I like the neck which is bent so that you cant see the body, very good dof here and the sharp details too

A well framed shot, Callie.
Excellent detail and a great 'snake-like' pose.

I have added her to my humerous theme folder. Thanks for the great photo and the chuckle. :o)
Great title, Callie! I like the humorous way you've catched this big bird. There is an ostrich couple and a bunch of emu's in the neighbourhood, but I never thought catching them like that. Your framing is superb, and you've got the animal expression pretty well. Bravo!

Nice shot. Good composition and colors. Like the title of the picture. Excellent notes. For me as a new owner of the D70 is nice to read the technincal info about this shot. Especially since I'm currently is looking for a telezoom lens to buy.

Unusual shot of a somewhat unusual bird, which proves that you don't have to take the whole thing to make a great picture!

Wow. That's just awesome. I can't believe how sharp it is. I had a really hard time photographing ostriches on our safari in Botswana - they were super skittish and ran pretty much at the first sight of us.
I love the way you have the eye centered just to the left. Absolutely great!
