Blog Photo Challenge Day Five

05 Sep

A beautiful days outing was a visit to Humbug Gully, a natural reserve that is home to numerous beautiful colorful Australian Birds and Wild life. I was actually able to get close up to my namesake, The Emu, they are a rather intimidating bird with very sharp claws, they are inquisitive by nature but have beautiful large inquiring eyes. The Emu is actually depicted on our Coat of Arms. I was feeding this little fellow out of a cup that he considered was eternally full.

I’d like to thank Lauren Scott at Baydreamer/ for tagging me in this fun photo challenge.

Here are the rules for the “Five Photos Five Stories” challenge: “Post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or a short paragraph and each day nominate another blogger for the challenge.

My Fifth and last day nomination for the challenge is open to all my Friends on WordPress.

    Looks like it was fun Ian! 🙂

    None of our local wildlife are that tame – with good reason given our local teens bricked a hedgehog to death for the fun of it… 😦

    God Bless my friend! 🙂

      It’s great being among the Emu’s mate, they chase you and their necks stretch so their beaks can get right into you, all good fun, not for the faint hearted. Don’t much go on your local teens idea of fun though, sounds a bit sick.
      All the best for the new week mate.

      Hi Melanie, I love being around the Emu’s, they are really inquisitive and do stretch their necks to get right into your face.
      Not for the faint hearted though,
      All the best for the coming new week.
