Nice to meet-emu!  An inquisitive emu shares a smile with a photographer on a birght sunny day.  Software engineer, Peter Cooper, 34, managed to capture this emu 'smiling' at him, at Maru Koala and Animal Park, near Melbourne, Australia, in a thinly veiled attempt to get the food he was holding. <br />
<br />
Peter said “They seem like quite curious creatures. They came up and investigated everyone who came near their enclosure, prowling up and down the fence over and over”.

“It was probably smiling about the fact it had seen food was on the way, if anything.  This one saw I had some and stalked towards me like something out of Jurassic Park!” <br />
