My day off work today. Warm and humid today and sunny so I thought Id take the 400 out and get some shots. These guys were about a 5 minute drive from my house. Lots of hay bales around here at the moment which is what I originally went out to photograph but never got around to putting the wide angle lens on. I'm sure you've all seen heaps of shots of roos before buts that's about all I got today which is the last day of spring here.


I thought I may as well post them here as Im getting no comments in the FM forums, seems a bit clicky at times unlike here and over at the canon and flicker groups.



Grazing on local farmland





This one just sat watching me for some time







These were handheld in windy conditions and at distance so could have been better had I used the tripod







so i moved on to another mob a couple of paddocks up and this shot was taken when these guys had just seen me







This one was my favorite, she is so cute and did not seem quite as afraid as some of the others, Note the joey in her pouch, she had been waving her paw about her face swatting flies which is why her paw is up

Beautiful animals...I wish one day I will have an opportunity to see one in the wild. I love the mountain in the BG of the first photo.

Those are really neat, Julie! I know you are accustomed to seeing that sight but that would be so cool to see in person. Thanks for sharing these.
