Swan Valley Kangaroo


It was a wonderfully sunny Sunday afternoon yesterday and I was in the Swan Valley visiting friends. About 30 kangaroos feed in the paddocks close to their house. Amazing given this is about a 30 minute drive from the central business district of Perth.

  3. Craig, I liked that direct look as well. Usually Australian wildlife is very 'flighty', but in this case, the kangaroos were used to being in close proximity to people. Down on the farm, they would have taken off if I was as close (although still a reasonable distance) as I was here.

    Many thanks for your comments everyone.

  6. I think I'd have been a little unnerved by that stare and crouch, Rae. Perfectly timed shot.
