Emu in the Hen House


We often pass this yard on our way to Bendigo and wonder how the owners ended up with a pet Emu.

Just as cute :)


Look at me, look at me! I’m just as cute as the others ๐Ÿ™‚

This little fellow looked quite disappointed that so much attention was focused on the Albino Wallabies, so I made sure I took his photo, too.

A Prickly Subject


Today’s prompt…

Also on our drive a few days ago, we saw two Echidnas along the same track as the deer ๐Ÿ™‚

Echidnas always bring a special memory for me . . . about twenty years ago we picked up my lateย Nan from the nursing home where she lived to take her for a drive on a sunny afternoon. Nan was in the early stages of Alzheimer’s. Along a bush track we saw an Echidna and stopped our Mitsubishi L300 van. Nan quickly opened the back sliding door and jumped out, calling to Nathaniel, Elijah, Jess and Pip to come and have a look. They were excited, of course, but I will never forget the look on Nan’s face . . . pure joy ๐Ÿ™‚
