I couldn't finish my posts about my trip out to SW Queensland without including photos of the most easily recognized of all the birds and animals from the less closely settled regions of Australia! These photos were also taken on Kilcowera Station.
We saw numbers of emus as we traveled around the station. This photo was taken soon after we left the camp ground. The next morning I found big bird prints just outside the fence around the camp ground. Later in the day when we stopped to eat our lunch a group of emus came close to check us out. They circled right around us to have a good look from all angles then slowly walked off again. This kangaroo is a big male of the Red Kangaroo species. They are the biggest of all the kangaroos and can grow up to 2 meters in height.For more bird photos visit the Bird Photography Weekly.
