CommentThis immature cassowary probably around nine months old appeared from nowhere but didn't dive directly into the rain forest. I was quite close. Thus after making some hurried adjustments for the gloom (first images near black) it is the monsoon season and conditions are off and on rain and cloud. I have made some post adjustments but they are limited. Note wattle starting to develop
