Fruity roo at the zoo by Michael Matthews

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

This is not one of my most artistic photos but I thought some of you might get a giggle out of it.
Taronga Zoo, Sydney.

For anyone who wants photos of kangaroos in the wild, take a trip to the Warrumbungles in north western New South Wales (Australia of course).

Country born & bred but now located in Sydney, Australia.

I’m fascinated by the beauty of nature & in particular Australian native flowers & landscapes. I also love colour & anything unusual.
The Blue Mountains are my favourite spot at the moment.

    Also a fly swatter would not go astray

  • Yes. That would have to be a fruit fly swatter of course.

    hahahahaaa!!! LOVE it! Wouldn’t surprise me at all if this was the way a kangaroo thought! ;)

    Good one! :D

  • Thanks for discovering one of my hidden gems Donna. Who knows what they are thinking. I love seeing lots of them at the Warrumbungles.

    You reminded me of a photo I made once, with a kangaroo in it.

    I hope this works. :)

  • Cool .. yes it worked. Love it. Sorry I somehow missed this comment earlier. I’ll blame it on lack of sleep this past week.
