Am I Lost?/ Camera Critters

Is this the Serengeti?

Nope. This is a farm in East Gwillimbury, Ontario.

Ostrich hen showing my camera her better side

Not shy at all this, female ostrich saw our car stop and slowly walked from the back of the field for this photo opportunity,

They are so bizarre looking. An awfully small brain in that head relative to the body.

George said...

How nice of the ostrich to pose for you. She must be a model.

Judy said...

What a sport to pose for you like that.

Whew, I thought I was somewhere else---so glad you explained for me.

I forgot theme day too. MB

Jacob said...

Female ostriches like to have their photos taken as do female emus.

Nah, I just made that up.

And there's no "shame" in forgetting theme day. A real "shame" would be losing your camera. As long as you haven't done that, you're good to go!

Great shots! I love the black cat, too!

JM said...

I believe this is a Nandu from Patagonia. The first shot is so cool! :-)

Hey , we have/had some of these just down the road and one of the boys in my class brought in an ostrich egg shell - amazing!
No wonder they're disorientated ;-)

Was it on a farm or just out there on its own? Pretty amazing. Valerie

Not a very pretty bird, but what can a bird do.:)

Ha, just like a woman.

eden said...

Great shots of the ostrich. So sweet of her to pose for you.

Rose said...

They are a strange looking creature...they are almost the kind of animal classified as so ugly they are cute.

That looks exactly like an emu. I thought you were an Australian blogger for a second and got all confused. Is that what ostriches look like, exactly like an emu?

ladyfi said...

Great shots! Love its cute little face.

What a lovely pose, she must be in the mood. I saw a giant ostrich in our wildlife park here before.

Willard said...

An unusual creature for camera critters, I like the photos very much.

Kristin said...

She's posing for your camera. :-)
Small brain. Amazing creatures though. Love your photography as always. Brilliant photos.
