    While shooting some close ups of an Emu he decided to attack my camera. [​IMG] I had my lens about a foot from his face and the only thing I can guess is that he saw his reflection in it (they don't like other males).

    Feel free to C&C the first one, I posted this more as a warning to be careful when shooting wildlife or in this case a pet at an animal rescue place.

    The attack picture looks horrible since he got too close to my lens.

    I just edited my first post so the pictures would show up for others. Since the site that I loaded them to first is password protected to see images I could see them in this thread and others could not.

    Sorry

    I like the first shot. And, dude, congrats on being brave enough to stand there and press the shutter while that freaky beak was coming at you.
