Local wildlife

Yesterday, in the middle of the afternoon, there was a large kangaroo on the side of the road as I drove up to the playing fields.  It was about 160 cm tall and appeared to be a large male Eastern Grey.  In the paddocks nearby, there were several smaller kangaroos.  They were busy grazing and resting in the shade.

The large male stood erect for a second or two as I slowed down in my car.  Just as quickly as he noticed me, he hopped away, over the barbed wire fence and disappeared from view.  It was a calm afternoon, but fairly warm.   I expect he was heading for a shady spot.

What a great way to spend a quiet Saturday afternoon!
