Ostrich with Chick

By sherlob    
Another from my South African safari last year. The chick blended into the ground wonderfully due to its natural camouflage, however our guide advised us that the mortality rate was very high. Indeed, one chick we noted was dead and it was considered likely that it had been trampled on by a parent bird.

Have a great week,
