Kangaroo Pouch Secrets by Lass With a Camera

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

I realise I am in serious danger of becoming known as the “pouch stalking lady” but I am just so fascinated with the hidden surprises that you see when you get close up. This one made me smile as the joey was tiny and was not coming out for anyone. Every now and then some other part of it’s anatomy beside the face would appear. I waited… and waited…. and waited…. but no. It was snug as a bug in a rug. Still, this photo made me smile :O)

    Fantastic shot, nice of her to let you so close!

  • Thanks bero84. The key to kangaroos is getting in the dirt with them. I find if I slowly get closer and just sit near them they get used to me and then I can get closer and closer… (and dirtier and covered in roo poo and ticks… ahhh glamorous! hehehe)

    LOL at your commentary…hmmm…the pouch stalking lady!!!
    This is beautiful, probably because it is not the normal “pouch” shot with the head showing, this holds mystery and mischief….and character!

  • It’s like the horror movie of pouches! weird bits emerging everywhere!! thanks for your lovely comment wendy!!

    This is incredible! You are so fortunate to be able to get so near to these animals. Warm wishes, Julie.

  • Thanks Julie :O) I think the same thing everytime I see a photo of a prairie dog or some other animal that we don’t have here in Australia!!
