Hahaha! But you'd think a speed hump wouldn't slow down a kangaroo, wouldn't you?!?!?! Happy New Year!!

Hi Carole. the first shot is a stunner. love the sign and the Kangaroo reading it. The bumps do't look high enough to worry him!

Irma said...

Beautiful photos of the kangaroo, the first picture is my favorite .
Perfect photographed Carole.
You ask Bob about the chewing and the crow, the difference is the size of the bird, the crow has a brown iris, chewing are smaller and has a blue iris.
The raven is the largest of the birds.
Greetings Irma

Amazingly I have not yet seen a real life Kangaroo even in a zoo. However planning a trip to Australia soon and hopefully I can spot quite a few of them.

The only time I have ever damaged a rental car (dented the front fender) was when a kangaroo bounded across the road in front of me. I swerved to avoid the kangaroo and hit the concrete base of a post at the side of the road. Great animals though, so quintessentially Australian.

EG CameraGirl said...

Such a sweet ace! I love how the kangaroo seems to be reading the sign. Perfect!

Lina Gustina said...

What a cute animal. I envy you for it. You can meet him on the street. For us these pretty animals do not live unfortunately. So I am very excited about these beautiful photos, thank you.

Happy new year wishes

John @ Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

Whenever I see a kangaroo I always think of the cartoons of Sylvester the cat and the young kangaroo that he thought was a monster mouse.

From the standpoint of someone who has never seen a kangaroo, they look like cuddly critters.
