Holy Cow! Watch where you step!! Or is it Holy Kangaroo?!?!?

Do you often see large groups like this?

Great shot!!


Here is another shot on a small country towns sports oval...they are everywhere ....Again this is only 1/2 of what were on this oval alone like the shots I got in the paddocks . Can get an idea of just how many frequent here by the Roo Poop on the ground :). I recon over the course of two days Ive seen close to a thousand of them around a 10 k radius of here both in town and in the surrounding countryside

BTW...these ones arnt sitting up because they are more accustomed to humans given they feed regularly on this local oval ...and they get heaps of tourists/out of town visitors stopping to take a look so they are not on alert like the roo,s that live outside the local country towns are

cheers

Wow, what a nice close-up shot, Shalu. I can't believe how close to this guy you got. Did you have to offer him acorns?

Thank you, Mike! :lol::-P I used stacked TCs at 1120mm. I was standing still with camera on tripod, waiting for birds to come at the popular perch.

Wow, that's such nice clarity and sharpness with stacked TC's, Shalu. I'm truly amazed at your results.

Funny you ask this as I was just mentioning to a mate of mine whom Im travelling with at the moment that the mobs of kangeroos we are seeing this trip are the largest ever...The shot I posted only shows a 1/4 of the kangaroos in that group. We are seeing upwards of 50-100 Kangaroos in a mob and this is repeated almost every paddock up around where we are. I personally have never seen as many Kangaroos as this and I have traveled into these areas exrtensively over the years. I think it wont be long before they start to do legal culls again as the Kangaroos stretch water supplies for the cattle etc not to mention eating out grazing areas for cattle etc . Shame really as they are such an interesting animal.

BTW...check out the little joey in the mothers pouch on the RHS of the mob. Ive only just noticed it myself after posting it up to POTN

Cheers

Wow 50-100 sounds like a vary large mob!! If you have any pics showing that many please post a few.

Yes I did see the joey in the pouch!

Here is one shot of the tourists getting selfies We actually had to go and tell the damn tour guide who had these people on a bus tour to go tell them to get back as they were too close and couyld have been badly injured if one of the kangeroos had decided to lash out with their claws. Anyone of these people were at risk.

Second pic shows the claws on one of them to get an idea of what they pack weapon wise .....Not a nice thing getting into a fight with one of these guys no matter how small they are :)
