We were astonished as in the midst of Sarus Crane country we located an Emu

(  Dromaius novaehollandiae) in India. Indeed it had traveled a long way from its home in Australia.

What had me bewildered was this was no zoo, this  was rural India at its best ; villages, wetlands and farms all around.

This bird though had loads of attitude and a mind of its own.

Watch the swagger as it displays its ‘long’ and ‘lovely’ legs


It settles into a pool of water created by  the Borewell  in the foreground.

Does it not look strange as it seems to hover above the ground with its legs folded forwards.( a reverse Vajra Asana)

                                                         Emu with the Bore well

If looks could kill, this EMU  sure had me down and out.

i dare you
I dare you

On asking my ever knowledgeable wife I was informed that the  Emu is now bred for its Eggs and Meat in , hold your breath , Noida (  a satellite city  of New Delhi) , India .

She had even been to a restaurant in Delhi where the chefs held live cooking classes using EMU meat. I prefer seeing  it chill out in it’s private swimming pool,  hope you do too.

As I shake my head in wonder I must discard some modesty and mention this is my 100th Post.

Still have not learnt how to place them in a row, maybe a fellow blogger will help me.
