Dust bathing is an animal behavior characterized by rolling or moving around in dust, dry earth or sand, with the likely purpose of removing parasites from fur, feathers or skin.

Ostrich males can come running from the furthest hill in a cloud of dust. Leaving you face this black beast alone. They can storm right up to your vehicle and bump it with its chest.
Leaning against the vehicle, it would stretch itself as high as possible and open its wings to make itself seem larger than life. This was comical, for it didn’t matter how large the ostrich tried to make itself, it always looked utterly pathetic trying to intimidate a 4×4.

However, when you happened to be outside

your vehicle, its intimidation proved to be somewhat more effective.^^

Ostriches are large, flightless birds that have long legs and a long neck that protrudes from a round body. Males have bold black-and-white coloring that they use to attract females.
Females, on the other hand, are light brown, im showing you a femail, doing her Friday dress up


No longer is it limited to pros or wealthy amateurs who could afford the $10,000 USD price tag on the big lenses by Canon and Nikon.

Whether you are shooting with an f/4 bazooka, or a more manageable, compact telephoto lens, field technique, and composition will play the most important role in your success.



If the bird flushes, you’ve screwed up badly.

You’ve wrecked any opportunity for photos and stressed the bird unnecessarily. Don’t approach birds on nests, they are particularly vulnerable.
In short, be aware of the impact of your actions, and remember that the well-being of the animals you are photographing is more important than the images.



The first, and most important, skill for getting close to wild birds is really a non-technique, technique.

It’s called “patience”.

When I have the time to dedicate to a shoot, I will frequently take a small cloth, spritz myself with a generous dose of insect repellent, put the camera on a tripod, and sit down.
There, I will remain, sometimes for hours.

Your goal as a bird and wildlife photographer should always be to photograph animals exhibiting their natural behavior. A stressed-out bird, flying or swimming away, will be inherently less interesting than one that is relaxed, or interacting with other animals.


Get low

The biggest mistake I see wildlife photographers make is shooting from too high a perspective. When standing upright, you will be aiming down

In the cluttered habitat of a local wetland, it can be hard to find a place where you can isolate the subject from the background.
Distance helps.
When the bird is well away from its background (this is where getting down low comes in) the backdrop will fade to a nice blur, which is frequently exactly what you will want
