  1. I took this photo a couple of years ago – kangaroos are always hanging around our front garden – the joey is hopping back into the pouch because something scared it (might have been me, getting too close) 😉

  2. OMG. The expression on the mother’s face and body is so hilarious. As a mother I can completely relate. Can’t you? There are definitely moments like this in all motherhood, with or without a pouch. I totally adore your kangaroo photos. They are so exotic to me living in New England where grey squirrels are everywhere, even once in our house!

  3. Watch out GB, an angry roo is a dangerous thing and I have the scars to prove it.
    However, this looks like she is friendly enough, but about the photo; unless Joey was actully just having a drink, the next bit is the funniest with the body in the pouch and the legs hanging out like a handfull of twigs!

    1. I remember you telling me about the scars Stafford! I was watching these two for over half an hour, right outside my house so plenty of room to escape if a male came near (the mother wasn’t particularly bothered by me, as I was using my zoom lens and was a fair few metres away). The joey was actually still quite young and small (despite looking huge in the picture) and what they do his jump in head first and then do a U-turn in the pouch, to pop their heads out – it does look funny with those long legs like sticks – haha.

  4. It’s like when you hear about five year olds breastfeeding. A woman I knew breastfed her son until he was 6. Blerch. Reminds me of that ‘Bitty’ skit from Little Britain….

    But I digress. The joey and mama are adorable. How lucky you are to have such visitors to your garden!

    1. Haha (blerch indeed) – we are lucky to have our furry visitors here all the time (though the joeys make me a bit anxious near the road – they jump around erratically like hyperactive toddlers and never watch where they are going!
