On my walk: Kangaroos

The car is in getting serviced today.  I thought it would be nice to walk home with the husband, the dog and the Nikon D3000 camera. I was right.

I had hoped to take photos of the plovers down that part of town, but the light was not that good. It had just gone 7:30am. We finish Daylight Saving time soon, thank goodness.

Growing vegetables is difficult in this area. These people have fencing to keep out the kangaroos, and netting to keep off the birds. There were two smaller kangaroos in their front yard, but they nicked off.

 

All photos will open in another window/tab when clicked on.

Only a block from home, we arrive at the vacant bit of land not far from the the footbridge. Always sure to find a kangaroo or two grazing there.

Look at the thickness of that tail, and the chest muscles!

I love the way the kangaroo in the middle hasn’t noticed anything …

… still oblivious (yes, those are shipping containers in the background)

 

Have a nice day.   🙂

    I’d hate to get a whack from that tail. What strong beasties they are!

    Obviously showing he is the boss. Wouldn’t like to come up against him at any time. Would be us a tree as quick as a flash.

      I was keeping my eye on him, one move towards me and I was gone!
