Emu crossing the rail line 2

Emu crossing the rail line 2
Composite photo. The emu paused for a moment seeming to consider the railway embankment or check for trains, then ran quite quickly up and over the line, placing feet very carefully between the rails. It was going so quickly down the other side I didn't get a shot of the descent, only its head peeking over the line, far right.

This is a close up of the adjacent image on which the level crossing is visible quite close, so why didn't the emu use the crossing? Perhaps because my vehicle was parked there, serving as a bird hide as I watched the small dam to the left where honeyeaters were coming to drink.

As for all panoramas, large size is suggested for more enjoyable looking around at details.
