Photographer's Note

Meet Sid the emu. He came up to say gidday to me at the Cairns Zoo. Emus are usually quite friendly and very curious. They are uniquely native to Australia and have played an important part in Aboriginal culture, food and traditions. One of the largest star constellations in the Southern Hemisphere was named by Aboriginal astronomers and forms the shape of an emu.

My first memory of emus was when I was very little and visiting Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve in Canberra. They were everywhere and wanted to join our picnic. They succeeded.
