Re: Wildlife photos

One of my favourite Eastern Grey Kangaroo shots. Mum and Dad had waited patiently for young Joey to cross the channel.The early morning lighting is allways good for colour in photography.

Re: Wildlife photos

Please keep them coming.. Top quality.

Re: Wildlife photos

I've got a lame question. I know nothing about Kangaroos, how young would that Joey be?

Re: Wildlife photos

Hmmmm..... young enough for a Croc to eat for breakfast..

I am not sure but I think the Eastern Grey Kangaroo is one of teh largest mammals in the World.. They can live over 20 years and if the one in front is a fully grown adult, I would have said the Joey is not as young as we would think?

Re: Wildlife photos

Kangaroos usually have one young annually. The young kangaroo, or joey, is born alive at a very immature stage, when it is only about 2 cm long and weighs less than a gram. Immediately after birth it crawls up the mother's body and enters the pouch. The baby attaches its mouth to one of four teats, which then enlarges to hold the young animal in place. After several weeks, the joey becomes more active and gradually spends more and more time outside the pouch, which it leaves completely between 7 and 10 months of age.
This one was probably just out of the pouch as he is about the right size to live totally outside.Some of them can live to a very old age of around 20 but I believe the average age is around 6 years most likely due to hunting and road kills.

Re: Wildlife photos

Thanks! Sorry I didn't mean to get your photo off topic, it's just that I don't know much about other animals. You're lucky but I'm sure we have some they you'd like to be around too.

Re: Wildlife photos

I was thinking along the same lines..?

I can't remember the statistics but there are far more different species of Kangaroo then you would imagine.. We have wallabees running or should I say hopping arounde here now in the UK.

Re: Wildlife photos

This is the large aggressive male.Hes gotta be six foot high and Im glad he headed the other way.Tree Hugger Id love to be able to photograph a grizzly or black bear in the wild along with wolves and perhaps a mountain lion.I would have loved to have photographed Sschkaak's bear encounter or even better still his reaction.I have a picture in my head of this one!!

Re: Wildlife photos

Now we are approaching summer lizards and snakes are becoming more active.This water dragon I found yesterday on the edge of a creek and they are a great to watch and eat everything from fruit to small birds.

Re: Wildlife photos

Hey Salty, those picts are BEAUTIFUL !!!!!!! I would love to have a couple for wall hangings and also for my desktop.  I do have to say there were a couple that did bring tears to my eyes.  The waterfall and the last sunset.  Loved em ~~~~ And by the way is that a picture of your house in case we all decide to take a trip to the down under?

I'm new here Salty, but I think I know you from elsewhere.  Your photos are fantastic!  I would never get any work done if I lived in such a magnificent environment.  Thanks so much for sharing with others.  Those are beautiful shots.

Well, I guess I didn't remember that I HAD been a member here.  I'm interested in environmental issues (and photography).
