Ostrich Eating Stones?

Ostrich seen eating stones to aid digestion

It is not uncommon for Ostrich to eat small stones and sand to aid with their digestion. This behavior is quite well known but has typically not been photographed at all in the Wild. 

When we caught these juvenile Ostrich enjoying their strange dessert in Tsavo East, the opportunity to photograph this was perfect. I carefully approached them so as not to disturb their natural routine and with some patience managed to get really close so as to fully capture all the interesting details.
