I’m a Sydney based photographer. Photographic interests are the outdoors, people, action, HDR and creative works as well as pretty much everything I guess.
You were in the right place at the right time Ian, great capture and humour !!!
Thank you very much m’dear :))

OH dear she does look a tad thirsty!!! :)
Thanks Wendi, I got lucky with this one as I don’t recall seeing a tongue out with kangaroos and wallabies before and this only happened once very briefly !!
Poor thing, i hope he found some water. Great shot
Hi Michelle, there was plenty of water for them but the set up made for an interesting image !! Thanks for commenting :))
aha, then everything is ok
Yes thankfully :))
LOL! great grab ian … didn’t know we had wallabies in the botanic gardens
Thanks Caz, this one has a fauna reserve and the animals are in an area where you can look but not get close to. I also took a pic of a redbellied black in the general area of the gardens which was a bit exciting !!! This is in a suburban area of Sydney. Heard you were in the mountains recently. Would have loved to have caught up with you. Cheers Ian
Well spotted Ian. Right place right time. Great.
Hi Gail, yes sometimes you can get lucky. I have never seen a wallaby’s tongue before. Thanks for the comment !!
Great capture Ian,,,just love the title!!!
Thank you !! Yes its all good fun :))
I’m STILL in the mountains – here for 6 weeks … do you and Di live up here somewhere?
We live in Castle Hill in NW Sydney, I’ll bmail you.
LOL!!! It must be thirsty work carrying around such a heavy joey!
Thanks Mel, it’s a fun image :) We don’t know when we’re well off :))
Hi Andy, thanks so much !!
