    1. Yes , John . Ostrich as a pet – Hozzzat ?
      One prominent environmentalist , here , keeps a variety of birds and little animals as pets .
      From his ‘ collection ‘ !

      Thank you.

    1. ๐Ÿ™‚ ! It is an ordinary ostrich – away from its natural environs !
      Not very friendly with the visitors !
      I liked it , but it didn’t like me ! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ !

      Thank you .

    2. ๐Ÿ™‚ ! It was not friendly ! The eyes and the expression tell the attitude !
      It did not like the camera either ! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ !

      Thank you .

  1. OK, Utham – what was the dialogue going on between photographer and photographed ? ๐Ÿ˜€
    I never saw one looking so good, before this. They’re not what you’d call beautiful; but of course every animal is beautiful in its own right.

    1. ๐Ÿ™‚ ! No dialogue , MR . None at all .
      The ‘ photographed ” – it is an ostrich , kept as a pet – was in bad mood . A moment later , it came towards the camera menacingly ! I have a shot of it as well .
      As you said , a different kind of beauty . Those big eyes were attractive .

      Thank you.

      P.S

      I liked the new Gravitar and the new photograph .

  2. That looks like an ostrich to me, and what a handsome fellow (or pretty lass) he (or she) is! It’s usually easy to tell the gender of most birds, but this one is hard for me. I doubt, however, it makes much difference except to another ostrich. I love how the eyes are set back in the head. Beautiful shot, Uthamz! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    1. It is an ostrich , Jackie . Kept as a pet in a village in India.
      May be because it is far away from its natural habitat , it looks a bit different – though I have seen very few ostriches so far.
      Those big eyes were attractive , that is why I thought of getting a shot.
      But it was in a bad mood , did not like the visitors and their camers ! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ !

      Thank you , Jackie.
