What is the collective noun for a group of Ostrich chicks? ..... I dunno, but they really look flocking funny when they all run along together ...

Thanks Mattib

Here are 2 from KNP

The sunrise backlighting on this little one made a very challenging shot, but with a little bit of PP tweaking, it was very rewarding.....

@ Songodin

Yep. You are right. They were in a tree about 10 - 15m1 from the road with an impi kill.

The Baby Giraffe will fall from that hight so that the ambilical cord can break and the baby's heart can start going.

@ Eagle Owl

I just love every sight of a leopard.
It has been way too long since I have seen one. :?

M367 - Nice shot of the mom giraffe after labour, however, where's the newborn? :|

Here's one of some hungry chicks that SO took at Letaba. He loves wandering around looking for small things and came across this feeding scene...

A very “new” youngster in the wild, however, Mum and baby did very well. It was quite fast on its legs but it took a time until the newborn found the milkbar – An amazing and unforgettable experience!
