One Big Happy Family

F4, 1/1000, ISO100, 300mm

On an early morning stroll I came across this little family. There were a total of 21 little ostriches. They ran their little legs off to get away from Man with camera.

Man with Camera knows ostriches are very dangerous birds when they protect their eggs and babies. Man with Camera keeps his distance

    Love seeing all the family together. Great shot Deryck!! You are so lucky to live where the animals are free to run. Where I live they are all in cages. Love seeing your work. BW~ Lind

    Great captured, I have counted fourteen young animals on your shot.
    The mother has more children as players in a football team. ;-))

    this is such a great shot! everything comes together beautifully: the composition, the directionality of their gaze, the light, highlighting the feathers, even the horizontal lines are not distracting but add to the density of the picture, giving it depth and context. truly wonderful!

    I am glad, they did not do you any harm!!
    Did you ever get to eat one of the eggs???
