It’s Wednesday down under and I’m feeling decidedly un-poetic. So what better way to celebrate the day than with Wallabies. They’ve been up around the house over the last couple of days and I’ve been trying to sort out my focusing with the camera. So, I took a lot of shots and here we have a varied selection. They’re taken in the early morning and late afternoon, and I must say some of the joey’s are cute. This pair of males were fighting when we drove up from putting the bins out this morning. Lucky for them I’d switched off the electric fence.
Mum and Joey wisely stayed away from all the action.
I took these a couple of nights ago. The male wallaby on the left is a fine, healthy specimen. The female and joey on the right were part of his small mob.
They all decided to wait at the bottom of the embankment for a group shot.
A lovely pair of ladies out for the evening.
The wallaby on the left is part of the above group. The one on the right came up to see what I was doing lying on the lawn yesterday evening. If you look at her lower body you will see that she’s probably not long given birth. The line of yellow stuff is where she’s been licking her fur for her newborn to crawl up, and into the pouch.
I took this one yesterday morning, she came around the side of the house by the garage and posed for me. She is a classic example of the, ‘Pretty Face Wallaby.’
This is why I’m showing the two shots, so you could get a look at just how beautiful these joeys are. Her little bloke is so relaxed, comfortable and at ease with the whole process.
I think this young bloke reckons a pouch can be transformed into a hammock any old time.
I’m wobbly today so I have nothing better to do than play with photos. My normal Friday photo post will still be on. This is for those bloggers, and you know who you are, that like Roos and Wallabies. These pictures are in low resolution so you might want to check them out in a new window or tab.
