Some more kangaroos.

On the way home from work tonight, spotted these kangaroos on a vacant block. It is a fairly usual sight to see one or two about at dusk, but I haven’t seen this many on this particular block by the road for some time. I immediately did a u-turn, pulled over, and fished out the phone.

I approached the fence, keeping behind a big concrete power pole. The horses came over and that helped keep the kangaroos in place. None moved until I reached the fence-line. The red brick building in the background, behind the trees, is the St Mary’s Catholic Church and Manse. WP_20150323_007Pity the weather was so gloomy! It was about 6:00pm.

I started blogging in an effort to keep the old brain cells alive. I'm writing a fantasy series, I take more MOOCs than I can handle, and am trying to get my Nikon D3000 off auto. I live in Victoria, Australia, with my husband and our dog, Vika.

    1. Hello Tess, I hope you enjoyed your break. I turned up to visit, at last, and there was nobody home. 😀 The kangaroos follow food, coming out when they can’t find enough to eat where they live.

  1. Is there water nearby your place, you think they would head to a river or the lake, more chance of green feed. Maybe the lake is too far for them to travel.

  2. Great photos, Christine! We used to get a mob of kangaroos in our bottom paddock when we lived in the Adelaide Hills. We had plenty of grass there and didn’t mind a bit. Now that we are trying to grow cattle and sheep, we resent the incursions from the wallabies, pademelons, potaroos and rabbits far more — which all goes to show just how much circumstances alter cases 🙂
