Ostrich two in dust

Location – Near Leeudril waterhole, Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, South Africa On my back to Twee Rivieren camp, I came across two ostrich having a quick dust bath in the last sunlight of the day before the sun is about to disappear behind the dunes. Providing me with a great opportunity to get some backlight through the dust created while they are taking their dust baths.
