Default FZ40 Kangaroos

We've been staying with my wife's parents in a fairly secluded beach location in New South Wales. Yesterday I went down late afternoon to find some kangaroos - unfortunately they were all staying in the shade and the afternoon light was quite strong, so it was hard to get decent shots. They were my least satisfying shots of the holiday, but some of you may still find them interesting.

In particular, these shots are of a mother kangaroo with a joey (baby) in her pouch. It's a large joey and I've included a crop of the joey's head and legs hanging out of the huge pouch.

Amazing! Yep, poor Mom; baby's a little large! That must be facinating to have all this wildlife in a "backyard"!

Thanks csa and Forzahibs. It's always pretty amazing seeing all this wildlife when we visit my wife's parents; the kangaroos do actually come through their yards when less people are around - you get piles of "roo poo" all over the place!
