13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Lone Ostrich at Etosha National Park

We were self-driving in Etosha National park when we saw blobs of fluff off the side of the road in the grasses. Then a head popped up. I had only seen ostrich in a zoo. This lonely ostrich caught my eye and I loved how the dark feathers and profile looked against and within the landscape.
