Kangaroo by Michael John

A kangaroo, relaxing in the midday sun, turned his head as I passed by.

The Eastern Grey Kangaroo (Macropus giganteus) is a marsupial found in southern and eastern Australia. It is also known as the Great Grey Kangaroo and the Forester Kangaroo.

The kangaroo is a national symbol of Australia. Its emblem is used on the Australian coat of arms.

Captured near Newcastle at a Wildlife Park, NSW, Australia.

Canon 400D, as is.

I live in Australia and enjoy bushwalking in the great outdoors, especially the world heritage listed Blue Mountains National Park.

My photographic interests are pretty much related to Australian landscapes, rustic Australia, historic Australia, Australian wildlife, flora, fauna, birds, etc. Guess I love the country I was born and live in.
