Being keen to try out my newly acquired camera - a Nikon Coolpix P510 - I had literally only just begun my journey to a local wetlands area some 15 minutes' drive away from my home in suburbia, when I looked to a large area of open land adjacent to a main road into town and couldn't believe my eyes - there were several kangaroos grazing and lazing in the grass!!
This adjacent road has high volume traffic, it was 10:30 in the morning and we are talking about a residential region some 15-20kms from Adelaide's CBD on the northern side - I have never seen wildlife in this area before, so it was an absolute treat, and gave me an opportunity to try out the new tripod as well! What a way to start the day!!
It looks like this 'roo has a baby joey in her pouch - another bonus!
They didn't seem at all perturbed by my presence
This one seemed to be hiding in the long grass.
Just have to post these on Camera Critters blog!
