  • Oscar_from_Denmark PRO 3y

    En excellent moment in a very weird setting... And the rain adds a lot to the whole.
    Great, great shot...

    Great picture! They look a bit like figurines set by a model railroad. (Not meaning to be annoying, but are you sure that's a rhea and not an emu?)
  • Stephen Leslie PRO 3y

    Kewzoo, I promise you that's a Rhea. If you are still in doubt then do a google image search for Emu and compare it.
  • Paddle Man 3y

    Yeah, and the animals in the background are rabbits. It's an Emu.

    Wallabies and a Rhea. That's my final say.
  • colin rhodehamel 3y

    funniest stream on flickr. that's my final say.
  • Stephen Leslie PRO 3y

    Thank you the guarded eye, that's most kind (and almost certainly untrue).
    Apologies for lack of new shots, life is fairly hectic at the moment.
    Normal service may be resumed soonish. Or not.
  • colin rhodehamel 3y

    absolutely true.
    take your time.
  • kewzoo PRO 3y

    but why would they put wallabies (Australian) with rheas (South American)? Emus are Australian. Not meaning to quibble--and it's a great picture--it's just that I'm a ratite fan..
  • Stephen Leslie PRO 3y

    Maybe it's just to demonstrate the harmony that exists between different species? Or some such nonsense. Either that or they got confused. I'll ask a keeper next time I'm there.
