Emu

Back this afternoon from a road trip 'out west' over the past seven days, bird-watching and sight-seeing.

Along the plains to the Warrumbungle Mountains a couple days back, was an opportunity to pick up some emu close-ups.  At first sight the emus were well in the distance, but after walking up to the roadside fence-line, they started walking on down for a closer look too.













The farm Emu Logic, has a very interesting web-site here.

I've been missing your blog so I look forward to hearing more details about your trip! Superb photos of these Emus, they look like portraits that they paid you for! And yes, one look at those feet and you know that you're looking at a dinosaur in disguise.
