I’ve still not got the next Vietnam post ready, so here is another ‘blast from the past’.
This is a Greater Rhea, or Rhea Americana, taken soon after I bought my Olympus E-520. I call him (or her) Smiler after Smiler in the TV series Last of the Summer Wine. I thought the expression fitted.
It’s was a bit of a novelty shot with my, at the time, newly acquired 70-300 lens. Sadly, I didn’t give myself enough DOF to keep its beak sharp.
