"Emus"



Hi All , Another post this time of some Emu photos taken whilst I was on holidays. This time we are around Shark Bay / Denham area of Western Australia. I came across these Emus walking along the side of the road in the middle of the day. The light was quite harsh but it was great watching them for a while.
Taken with a Nikon D7000 and a Sigma 150-500.
Thanks for looking and CC more than welcome.

Cheers Glen

Good shots of Rare bird, I liked the first one with its habitat if the heads were above the horizon it would have looked great. TFS

Very nice. Shots, Glen.

I admit that Emus don't seem to exude a high intellect. 😁

Hi Glen, sounds exciting. And the pics are great. Can't image seeing these birds out in the wild like that. Mixing the vast, empty landscape with the emus make for great photography.

Stunning! I'd like to see just a smidge more room below their feet, but that is just a nit, very impressive shots!
