Oh my goodness, Carole, how precious they are, and how fortunate you were to be able to photograph them.

He looks a little too big to be crawling into his hidey hole. Can't imagine that being comfortable and cozy at his age.

I didn't know they still stayed with their mother when they were alreay that tall. Special serie of pictures.

Greetings,
Filip

These are not birds but what a sensational series of shots. Well done. Where were you?

Carole M. said...

thanks for all the lovely comments; glad you enjoyed seeing the kangaroo and her joey. Diane b: I was just about five kilometres from home near the lake at Morisset Park. Bob Bushell: Apparently around ten months of age and joey has been working it's way to full-time independence away from the pouch.

I'm not usually one to coo over baby animals, but that joey is very cute! It must be the body proportions and dimensions that appeal - the over-sized legs, huge dark eyes, etc. Lovely photos!

EG CameraGirl said...

WOW! That joey still hides in its mother's pouch? He looks a tad big and playful for that. :))
