    I’ve always wanted to feel the pouch of a kangaroo.

      Not sure if they would let you get that close unless you were at a wildlife park where the creatures are used to people. Kangaroos can be extremely aggressive in the wild, especially the males so approaching them is not advisable. Wallabies are much smaller and I have had the privilege of nursing a joey (baby wallaby), it is quite amazing 🙂

    Great pics. When I visited Australia, it was the bird life that fascinated me the most. I simply cannot believe how beautiful and “common” the birds are.

      Thank you. The birdlife is quite varied in our area, we have lots of different visitors to the bush that our yard backs on to but not all of them are easily photographed thanks to the barking of our doggies. We are very lucky, in addition to the common magpie, crow and noisy miner birds we get cockatoos, king parrots, pheasant coucals and the occasional rosella and tawny frog mouth. I really love watching the lorikeets as they feed on the flowers, hopping from branch to branch, such beautiful and entertaining birds.

    I wonder what it’s like to have them as “neighbors…” These are beautiful pictures!

      Thank you. The Rainbow Lorikeets are extremely noisy and we usually have 3 or 4 of them at any one time in our native trees but in some areas the trees are filled with them. The wallabies are quiet and a little nervous, they don’t stick around for long.

    Wordless Wednesday! Now there’s a concept I’d struggle with. Nice shots, Sam.
