Black-bellied Bustard

Photographed at 6:15 pm on 2 May, 2015 in Masai Mara National Reserve, Kenya, using an EOS 1D X camera and an EF 400mm f/2.8L IS II super-telephoto lens.

ISO 6400, 1/400 sec., f/13, 400mm focal length, handheld Manual exposure.


A recurring feature of my safaris in Masai Mara has been the regular appearance of bustards beside the dusty tracks. They're often stalking with their characteristic jerking motion.

This bustard was spotted late into the evening game drive, when sunlight was minimal. Nonetheless, sufficient lingering sunlight made it possible to observe for about two minutes.
