It's not a sculpture.. a mothering moment!



First up I apologize that these aren't the sharpest of images, was using my 300mm long lens without a tripod.. or my knees :) I couldn't pass up on this sweet scene while walking in Pinnaroo late yesterday afternoon. I don't know if you have ever seen a joey, it's head inside mum's pouch suckling while she waits with patient expression.. amazingly it's a first for me! Bit of a change from sculptures although we might be back to them at some time very soon :) Happy Thursday, take care and stay safe.. p.s. last shot, look what I spied through the trees beside the lake, last seen here..

  5. Can be tricky to shoot at 300mm without a tripod so I think you did a good job on this fine moment in time.

  8. Such a sweet scene. Mothering in nature is so interesting. It's so instinctive.

  13. He is pretty big to drink at his mother, but as a human child you can't refuse it as a mother. She is waiting so patiently.

  15. Everybody's gotta eat. I remember the first time I saw kangaroos in the wild, driving back to Sydney on the rural road from Jenolan Caves. Might as well have been on a different planet.

  20. I've seen plenty of roos in the wild but never this kind of moment. What amazed me is the sculpture. Is it a permanent one?

  21. WOW a 300mm lens, I wish I had one! Would like to see a kangaroo in person. Until then I will enjoy your pictures. Tom The Backroads Traveller

  22. The joey sure is big! Aw, but sweet scene and great shots, even without your knees, Grace ;-)

  23. The joey looks as if he is loathe to grow up. He needs to hang on to baby ways for a while yet. And love the fantasy of the peeking sculpture.
