This is a fairly unusual scene, seeing ostriches so close to the water’s edge. The shot was taken on a hot and still summer’s day, and there they were cooling down on the wet sand. While currently our winter weather is set in and the nor’ westerly storms hammer the coast, oh! we dream of ‘Summer Lovin’ ….. this week’s photo challenge!

Oh my gosh Liz, that is the MOST amazing shot!!! Who’d have imagined?? I love it, thanks for sharing 🙂
This is wonderful, how lovely to see a pair of ostriches like this. Phew, it’s so hot, no wonder they need to cool down as well…:-)
Adorable photo. I photographed ostriches down at the Cape of Good Hope – the closest I have seen them by the sea. Which beach is this?
This is so rare, right, we always associate ostriches to deserts
Well captured 🙂
Next time you go to Iceland, smuggle my camera and me, in your suitcase!
Let me get my magic wand…..
Interesting looking creatures. I wonder if that’s a parent on the right and an offspring on the left, given that one expression seems impish and the other watchful. 😀
🙂 … ’tis Mr and Mrs… you’ve picked the right temperament too!
Amazing photo, Marylou. I’ve never seen this before. 🙂
Never know what we’ll spot next … i expect perhaps the ostriches could take to paddling along the water’s edge?!
Oh my, never in my wildest dreams would I imagine ostriches on beaches!
… sometimes it does all seems a bit surreal. Edward Lear’s verses come to mind 🙂
Cool shot, Liz!
