They are 2 beauties.
Interesting the different types we have, similar but some quite markedly distinct.

Been in a scrap by the looks of the forearm.

Yeah, she did look like she'd been in a scrap. Probably why I was able to get so close.


Everything comes to those who wait.

One of my locals, I always get a buzz when they leave the water and approach me. Overcast morning under the canopy, dark tannin stained water so not too bad.

Not the usual wildlife, pretty sure it's some kind of mud dauber wasp, a solitary pollinator.

one of the local wallaby's, it looks like he's saying "are you there again with that camera"

Haven't been back home since 2018 and unlikely to anytime soon (thanks corona!) - looking through this thread and seeing all the more familiar wildlife was really great. Sharing this one I took back in 2014.

That's a great image. Love the lighting

Great capture!! I would kill for a shot of these guys. One of the few Australian mammals that have well and truly eluded me . Briefly spotted one once on the overland track in one of the rivers/creeks we crossed but at a distance. Your very lucky to have such a great clear image of them. Im very envious :)


Cheers
