The Most DH pulled the Rover to the side of the road, abruptly. Clutching my chest I gasped "Whats wrong?". "Emu." He said.
Peering through the camera's viewfinder with the lens out to 300mm, "Uh, no, I dont see anybody out there. You feeling alright? Maybe I should drive for awhile...Oh! Wait a minute, Yeah! Geeze, how'd you see him?"
I got this close before calling off the stalk.
Another first time wild sighting!
