A Real Dinosaur!!! Wait, That's an EMU!

A Real Dinosaur!!! Wait, That's an EMU! 

Take one good look at this amazing bird's face and you'll agree: it looks undeniably like its ancestors, the dinosaurs! It's even got a serrated beak! In fact, Emus and other ratites species like Ostriches are responsible for helping scientists understand how dinosaurs move upright, and are also used as the models for cgi dinosaurs in movies and documentaries.

Steve and I got to go to an Emu farm here in southern Oregon with our photography group and were given a tour of the facilities. I took lots and lots of pictures including eggs, chicks, juveniles, detail shots, and other things like emu egg artwork, emu oil products, and many other really neat pictures. I'll be showing them in the next few weeks and filling you in on more details about these super cool birds! A big thank you to Kay at the High Cascade Emu Ranch for allowing all of us to spend the day taking pictures of their wonderful birds and facilities!

Thanks to all of you who have visited and have left comments and favorites! I try to go to all of your pages within a day or two and is a highlight for me to see your beautiful photography! :)
