All good fun. I love the look on the face of the onlooker in the third picture. So human, it’s like a series of pictures from The Valley on a Saturday night.

Yes, indeed like the Valley or a pub (see my poem – Friday Night from Hell – for a good description of out of control blokes). Would you believe that I took these photos from across the street from our house – they were practice fighting for over an hour – and grunting and coughing the whole time. They can get quite scary, especially when you hear them at night. They cough when they are submissive.

I had no idea that such things went on. LOL> oh thanks for the light moments.

It’s amazing isn’t it – thank God they were just practicing. When they are serious you don’t want to be anywhere near them – one night two kangaroos took to the more serious fighting, so our neighbours told us, and there was blood and guts everywhere. I’m glad I didn’t see that.

Keep up the great photos. What a display!

It’s amazing isn’t it – sometimes when tourists go really close to kangaroos I feel like telling them not to be so stupid – if you go near a female when a male suitor is nearby – there’s going to be trouble.

So nice to hear from you Sumedh Prasad. Yes, they are an entertaining bunch that mob of kangaroos.
