Eye, eye.....!!

I would very much like to claim this picture as one of mine (and believe me I WAS tempted haha!), but this candid shot of an Emu with a very penetrating stare was taken a week ago at Caversham Wildlife Park in the Swan Valley by Bill from (billsdiving) who I'm trying to convince to expand his blog to 'billsdivingandmore'  as he takes brilliant photos of all sorts of things.. I'm having a little eye operation today, nothing serious, but I might be out of commission for a few days...so take care and hopefully 'SEE' you in a few days.....!!

  2. This is a familiar sight. Susie spent a semester in Australia and afterward a print of an emu graced her room. Good luck with your eye operation. I will be thinking of you.

  3. Very nicely done. Never seen an emu dive before, so I guess this is not one of his diving pics.
    Hopefully you will be back, sight fully restored soon.

  6. Fabulous photograph, whoever the author. Steam coming out of its ears! So, cataract surgery? Must be common in sunny Australia. Easy as can be these days.

  19. Omigod! I did a double-take when I saw this! It's almost a duplicate of a photo I took in south Florida 25 years ago. If you send me your email, I'll shoot you a copy of it.

    Re your eye surgery: I don't know what you're having done, but I had cataract surgery with implants in both eyes last December. It worked out very well and I can see again with glasses - that hasn't been the case for 35 years!
