Ostrich Group

 

Photographed at 9:37 am on 22 January, 2013 in Masai Mara National Reserve, Kenya, using an EOS 1D X camera and an EF 200mm f/2.8L IS telephoto lens + EF 2x extender.

 

ISO 100, 1/640 sec., f/5.6, 400mm focal length, handheld Manual Exposure.

The ratites — ostriches, emus, rheas, cassowaries and kiwis — have a special charm, having adapted to a flightless lifestyle in contrast with bird species which regularly fly.

 

Spotting ostriches from afar is a special joy on a safari, as they represent the vitality of life on the savanna. This group was underneath circling vultures near a leopard kill in a tree.
