Some more kangaroos.

On the way home from work tonight, spotted these kangaroos on a vacant block. It is a fairly usual sight to see one or two about at dusk, but I haven’t seen this many on this particular block by the road for some time. I immediately did a u-turn, pulled over, and fished out the phone.

I approached the fence, keeping behind a big concrete power pole. The horses came over and that helped keep the kangaroos in place. None moved until I reached the fence-line. The red brick building in the background, behind the trees, is the St Mary’s Catholic Church and Manse. WP_20150323_007Pity the weather was so gloomy! It was about 6:00pm.

    Great photo. Nice to see a mob like that with other animals (the wild with the tame)

    Great mob aren’t they. Shows that two different species can co-exist. Shame the same can’t be said for the human race.

  3. Exciting to see so many kangaroos. Do you think they might be moving house?

      Hello Tess, I hope you enjoyed your break. I turned up to visit, at last, and there was nobody home. 😀 The kangaroos follow food, coming out when they can’t find enough to eat where they live.

      1. The break did me good. The reading was nourishing. I revamped my schedule to carve more ME time away from Blogworld.
        I do that too: follow the food. 😛 😛

          Blogging can be a bit counter-productive if one does not take care! I’m being fairly good about working on my novel before plugging in the internet.

      Hello Suzy! It doesn’t snow where I live, either – another plus. 😀

    Is there water nearby your place, you think they would head to a river or the lake, more chance of green feed. Maybe the lake is too far for them to travel.

      LOL. I think that is you Sue? They drink out of local streams and dams. The lake is too far away from here – I suppose.

    Great photos, Christine! We used to get a mob of kangaroos in our bottom paddock when we lived in the Adelaide Hills. We had plenty of grass there and didn’t mind a bit. Now that we are trying to grow cattle and sheep, we resent the incursions from the wallabies, pademelons, potaroos and rabbits far more — which all goes to show just how much circumstances alter cases 🙂

      At least you are allowed to do something about rabbits … it’s is all relative, that’s for sure!
