True, there are seven chicks in this image! Can you find the seventh little guy?
Emus are birds I have a great deal of respect for, when trying to photograph them. This group were up against a wire fence which slowed them down enough to get a photo but also aware that dad would have felt trapped if I tried to get closer and no way was I going to have him taking after me when he felt the need to protect his little family.
I am disappointed with the quality of the photo, as I am with the remainder that I have on file. I hope to remedy this in September when I will be sharing the company of emus. Well not literally, but sometimes they do walk past the shearing shed during the art exhibition in the Central Flinders Ranges.
