[pic] Emu eye
 
On one of my evening walks I came across this Emu in a paddock on one of the locals properties! Believe me when I say this isnít normal for our area, we are hardly living out in the bush. It was very friendly, came right up to the barbed-wire fence to check us out, probably looking for a feed. I love the colour of the eyes.

THAT is one U-G-L-Y bird! I like your framing and focusing here.

Hey Adam: a really nice capture.

I had to laugh when I saw it; my first impression was that great minds think alike. Look at the shot that I just took this past Saturday. LOL :icon_lol:
