Emu Sees You

by Kristi Hines · Australia, Melbourne


Some stars are born ready for their closeup. This bird was definitely one of them – she gave me a little time to get a great face forward shot before wandering away.

A startling image, uncanny, scary…. I think it would be even more so it the eyes were a little lighter.

Hi there – very good picture. I can’t help but wonder how many times flies wander into the holes in Emu’s head, have a bit of a look around and them fly out! Even thinking of it makes my toes curl!

Excellent post and a chilling portrait. There is no doubt in my mind, when seeing images like this, that there is dinosaur blood running through those vanes even though your emu’s eyebrows more resemble my own!
