I suspect that everyone who visits Australia wants to see a kangaroo.
I expect so :)
This is an up close look at a kangaroo! Lovely!
As close as I wanted to get, I tell you even them I was careful ready to run if necessary.
So cute, I saw some at a zoo almost ten years ago, there was an open area where you could freely walk semi-close to them. They said to stay on the concrete and they would stay on the grass. They sure are not people friendly.
They can do you great damage if they get annoyed that’s why it’s good idea not to get too close.
Roos are too cool!
They are so cute!! I've only seen them in zoo..
Well at least you have seen them in reality. :)
Me parecen muy simpáticos estos animales.Besos
They are beautiful and so many different species too.
Looks as if one of them has a really big joey sticking out of her pouch. They must be quite an ordeal to carry around when they become that big.
It is amazing how they do it Rosemary, they are interesting to watch.
I love that one with the little guy in the pouch! They seem only mildly interested in that critter with the camera.... Great shots.
They are amusing to watch from a distance, and thanks.
Oh.... And yes Mt. St. Helens gets pretty bare in the summer-- The peak that blew off all those years ago used to keep some snow.
I recall you talking about that peak some time back... :)
They are as interested in you as you are them. Stars in the making. :)The big bucks (and I'm not referring to a big win in the Lotto) are not to be toyed with, nor is a Mumma Roo with a joey in her pouch. They're powerfully strong animals...and fascinating creatures, too. Keeping a good distance from them is advisable, that is for sure.Great shots, Margaret. :)
You are correct in what you say Lee. Thanks.
Big and dangerous claws and lol at the joey feet.
Very dangerous Andrew...wouldn’t like to tangle with them.
Aha, one of my favourite animals in the world, I could watch them all day long.
They are interesting in many ways.
That one kangaroo looks funny with just the Joey's feet poking out.
It does look a bit odd, they sure do get on some weird angles.
Margaret you have their attention. The kangaroos are giving you a eyes wide open stare.
They sure were and posing :)
It was very well advised to keep aware of them - the old man 'roo is very dangerous and you can get ripped right open.The "does" with a joey in the pouch is also quite capable of making a mess of a human who gets too close.I presume there would have been warning signs around this parkland area?????I sure hope so - then again many people don't read. No sympathy from me when an attack occurs. I just call these clots - stupid bastards!CheersColin
No warning signs what so ever, most of know the damage a too can do to us if we get too close.
I'm not so sure - Overseas visitors and city slickers!I have seen as a young kid a man's stomach which was a "restored"mess - 1950's. He was a fencer and a roo attacked. The GoondiwindiHospital in those days was not too brilliant in the stitching up department way back then. He was a lucky man that fellow fencers were around and came to the rescue - his guts were all over the place and they put them back in and raced him to the hospital.Not a sight to see.Colin
Roos have such a casual, 'well duh' look about them.
Oh, they are so cute :) Thanks for sharing your beautiful photos !!Happy Sunday !
I just saw a mother with her baby in her pocket :)How sweet :)
i been waiting for your post about kangaroos dear friend:)i love them so much and love to watch them on geographic channel
Kangaroo mums always look so uncomfortable when the joeys get big.
