Emu and chicks

emus among wildflowers adult reprimanding teenagers

Emu and chicks IMG 0640 - These birds were part of a large flock of emus that were wandering among wildflowers in the Flinders Ranges in northern South Australia. On a day when a gale was battering the landscape their feathers were conspicuously windblown. The large bird on the left appears to be talking to the smaller and younger ones like an adult reprimanding two teenagers, but like all teenagers they were perhaps unwilling to listen to the advise of their elders who have more experience of life and its perils.
