The picture was taken on the South Coast of South Africa. I was on my way to Witsand when I came across these. ostriches. This was a large herd of predominantly female ostriches. They were all about six months old. One can fairly accurately guess their age based on their height and the development of their feathers. There was one female that was very curious and came right up to the camera. You can see the fine detail of this females face with more onlookers at the back. The one problem is that you have to be careful as they will peck at the camera to see if it’s edible. The result is a nice detailed close-up of the face.
