This is a top shot! What makes it interesting is the lens in the shot and the fox's reaction to it.......

I once saw an ostrich eat large broken glass pieces from a dropped soft drink bottle that smashed on a rock near where the ostrich was......They are pretty stupid animals like their brother the emu here in Australia . The emus in the Outback even eat dirt they are that stupid ....Thats why I wouldnt have a lens near them either because I wouldnt put it past them to use their beak to try and break it ......There is also a video on the internet that shows a photographer being attacked and then chased by one whilst trying to take some pics and after also having had it happen to me on the sand dunes near Monkey Mia ( WA AUS) I now give them a damn wide berth when I come in contact with them these days
I was hand feeding an ostrich at Hunter Valley Zoo (north of Sydney, Australia), and the bugger thought it would be a good idea to try to swallow my hand as well as the food... much delight from a small child nearby, but when he realised that his dad hadn't caught the action on camera, he asked me to make the birdie eat my hand again... which I happily obliged... lol! Ostriches don't have teeth, and it's easy enough to extract your hand, so why not? Made the kid's day... hehe!

One bird I won't go too near is a Cassowary... they are nuts... cranky, nasty, nuts!
I had a cassowary smash my wing mirror whilst driving through the Daintree. I wouldn't mind but I sat there for a good 10 minutes waiting for it to get off the road when it decided to have a go at me. Good job I had the windows up! I saw some chicks on the side of the road about 100 metres earlier so I'm guessing that was the parent
