Helloooo world.....!!



The sun was shining, the kangaroos were relaxed and it was well worth the wait when little heads started popping out of pouches left, right and centre..! Honestly it really is the most amazing thing to watch, it starts with a sort of squirmy movement in the tummy area, then a little black nose pushes through, one ear then another and all of a sudden  'pop' out comes the cutest little face ever. A lot bigger than the 'lima bean' sized newborn that climbed it's way up to the pouch, there they will be safe and warm and suckle until they are nine months old, enjoying the odd nibble on the grass when mum bends low enough for them to reach it. I hope that like this little joey, you have a safe and snug weekend.....!!

  9. These are such great pictures. I just spent the day at the San Diego Safari Park and I just realized after seeing your photos that I didn't see any kangaroos at all. Plenty of Lorikeets but, no kangaroos. Too bad.

  16. How kangeroos must long for the pouch when the day comes for them to leave it. I'm sure there is a certain soaring liberation but ah, there must also be moments of yearning for what is lost.
