Emu's Splash

Emu's Splash

This is an Emu. I was also quite luckily as to capture this guy raising its head from the water. If you click on the picture, you will notice the water splash from its beak to the pool. The picture will be better if I had framed the Emu more towards the right so that all the water droplets will be in frame. But hey, I do not know what it's going to do next.

The Emu subspecies that previously inhabited Tasmania became extinct following the European settlement of Australia in 1788; the distribution of the mainland subspecies has also been affected by human activities. Once common on the east coast, Emu are now uncommon; by contrast, the development of agriculture and the provision of water for stock in the interior of the continent have increased the range of the Emu in arid regions. Emus are farmed for their meat, oil and leather.
