17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Little Hartley

There is a place called Hartley when you drive down to the valley from my place in the Blue Mountains. I often drive that way to go to the grocery store. It is a rural area west of Sydney. I always see these wildlife grazing around the backroads on my way to the next village. Among the kangaroos, walabis and parrots are two beautiful emus. The one in my image definitely has a lot of personality and can rock a good hairdo!
