On The Run

As I come through the farm gate of an afternoon kangaroos take off in all directions. Their numbers seem to be doubling overnight!!!
Great shot. Must be lots to eat

Wow! Thanks for showing us non-Aussies a shot of a kangaroo in motion.
Are the growing numbers going to be a problem? I remember hearing YEARS ago, that the Australian government was killing (or maybe had approved the hunting of) large numbers of kangaroos. It sounded very sad.

Great! Lucky you are to live together with such funny creatures! Nice action shot! Fav!

It always amazed me to see how you all in Australia can capture these wonderful animals!! We just have deer and elk around here, lol!

Great capture. Well done.

It think like deer they are fun to look at but the damages done to crops and cars might be alot......Do people eat them? Think I would have to give it a try.

@wildernesswillie think first why there are cars and houses everywhere and take away the place which belongs to the deers and kangaroos!
October 29th, 2012  
Oh fun. They scamper away kind of like little lizards and squarels here.

i love viewing your images. they remind me how our lives are thousands of miles apart yet we both share a love for photography. :-)

Wonderful capture. I always wonder if you find them as adorable as non-Australians do. :O)
October 29th, 2012  
Oh they're so cute! I feel exactly like Donna!
October 29th, 2012  
Great capture! It seems you have kangaroos in the same way we have deer - that is, overrun!

You must have been so quick for this one. Would love to see Roo in real life some day!

@pasadenarose They do have to cull them at times. Farmers can be severely affected as they eat grasses and crops. @366days They are a very common site, Suzanne but I do still appreciate they are quite a unique animal. I posted a photo of an echidna a couple of weeks ago and that, for me, was very exciting as they are quite shy and we rarely see them. :))

Awesome shot - you can see how muscular they are.
