Default [pic] Emu Portrait

The resident Emus at Phillip Island Wildlife Park are very clever & quite cheeky. Visitors to the park are given a brown paper bag that contains pellets to feed the animals. When you enter their paddock, the Emus swarm & proceed to stick their beaks into the bag while you are still holding it! Itís actually quite clever, as most people are intimidated by their behaviour & let go of the bag & the Emus take off with their bounty.

Phillip Island Wildlife Park, Phillip Island, Victoria, Australia

Zuiko 70-300mm lens
