  1. fantastic photo, gabrielle! what a wonder these creatures are! i get excited when i see a mallard duck couple in the front yard. i can’t imagine what a thrill it is to be able to get close enough to take a picture of a mother kangaroo and little joey in the front yard! wow!

    1. Thanks Selma – it is hard to find a theme that suits everything you need. One day might have to start from scratch and design a proper one. I do keep coming back to this one, however.

  2. Yes, this is such a cute photo. But where I live, a moderately large city, it has to be said, last Friday an office worker went for a lunchtime run in nearby bushland and got knocked out by a roo – male or female, the victim doesn’t know. His face made him look like he’d been in a pub fight. Why are beautiful things also so violent sometimes? Maybe it is a motherhood thing.

    1. If a kangaroo is taken by surprise (like someone running) than they could easily spook and lash out or even hurt someone by trying to hop away. You need to be wary of kangaroos because they are unpredictable and they have great strength in their legs and very sharp claws. Thanks for commenting Nigel.

  3. About being attacked by a big buck roo. I have the scars to prove it! Nasty bugger mistook me for a rival and tried to disebowel me. All I did was look her way. Jealousy is a nasty enotion, and I didn’t fancy her anyway!
