Many marsupials..



It's been a little while since I visited Mum and Dad in Pinnaroo Valley Memorial Park, this week seemed like a good time. The kangaroos here in the park have a lovely life, the grass is sweet and the eucalyptus leaves juicy!


Whatever time of the year I visit there are joeys in pouches. That's quite a load below, and is that a head and hoofs (hooves?) coming out at the same time.. flexible much  :)


Following dad!


Female and joey watching as the males face-off below, it didn't amount to much :)



... and the sweet little joey below rolled over with gay abandon to enjoy the warm afternoon sun! I hope you enjoyed my marsupial meanderings :) Happy Wednesday, take care and stay safe..

  2. I love to watch roos and their babies! You captured them in so many facets of their life, wonderful! That one pouch is really dragging, shouldn't Joey be moving out on his own??

  3. Oh, I LOVE your shots for the day, Grace!! How fun it would be to see the kangaroos like this!!! That little one is indeed "kicked back"!! Thanks for these! A great start for my day -- it's cold, gray, wet and grim and not one Joey to be seen!!

  4. They are such beautiful animals... and yes, those are really big pouches! Time for the joeys to be out and about on their own instead of hitching rides!

  5. Those are great shots; they are fascinating creatures - love the way they move. And the shots contrast so much with a very cold, wet, windy evening over here!

  6. See? That's why I read your blog, because otherwise
    I would never get to them. Love the little ones :)

  9. They are fat looking kangaroos. Eventually mum must say to her joey no, you can no longer fit.

  14. It's a beautiful cemetery! And I enjoyed seeing all these kangaroo photos, so different from anything I ever see here. :)

  15. Thank you, Grace. I don't think I've ever seen such wonderful, close-up shots of Kangaroos! It was a pleasure. Can't believe how big those pouches are. I'd guess one would not want to get in a confrontation with one of the big males, for sure.

  16. I always enjoy the marsupial encounters. Since this is an animal we never see in this part of the world, it is such a joy to know that they have such a wonderful environment for roam free in. Once again, gorgeous shots of these colorful characters.

  22. You just blew my MIND! Wow! never seen these guys so intimately. Great job (as usual).

    Just one thing I'm unclear on: Your Mum and Dad . . . . . are . . . . .kangaroos?

  28. They are such unusual funny animals with the way they carry their rather grown up children!

  33. Beautiful series of these charming and exotic animals.
    (exotic to me, of course)

  34. WHOAAAA! Fabulous. Isn't it interesting how different the local flora and fauna are around the world. A sight like this would bring out the hordes in Florida, if it were even possible.
