Pictures by Ravi Ram:
It is ostrich breeding season in NNP: this cock is hot to trot: he’s a redneck!
On espying his hen, he crouches down for a mating dance…
He rushes towards her…
And she indicates she is ready to mate….
And crouches down herself….
In the throes of passion….
Looks like he is enjoying!
She is completely covered….
And off she goes ready to produce the next generation of ostriches…
It is said that NNP contains the densest population of wild ostriches in the world!
