Ee Moo

Today we went on a road trip and came across this creature. Affectionately known as Ee Moo.


Just out of town on the way to Tamworth is a paddock that Matt always spots this Emu in. Today he happened to be right at the fence closest to the highway. Not content on taking this shot from across the road I crossed the highway, armed with a few slices of bread. He ate right out of our hands! Yes, my finger is still sore!









Just because I was so close I took a close up shot of the beautiful feathers. In his excitement to take the bread out of my hands some feathers got caught in the barbs of the fence... Shawn now wants to start a feather collection!

I will have fun playing with this images later when I have more time.















While at Tamworth we had an early birthday lunch for Matt. His birthday is on the 3rd and weekdays are busy...
We hit a few shops and much to my disappointment Spartys party shop is now in the Spotlight main shop... I am a bit slow...this may have happened months ago, it has been awhile since I have hung out in Tamworth.

Last night Amanda and Roy came for dinner. It has been awhile since we have had a catch up with them so it was lovely to do so!

Well I better go and get dinner for tonight... last thing I want to do is eat after a BIG lunch.... kids my need feeding though!
Thanks for stopping by and reading my Ee Moo ramblings :)

Julie: Very nice pictures of the Emu. This is an animal we only see in the zoo.
