    Oh, wow! Must be awesome to get to photograph them in the wild! Isn’t he cute?! … When I first saw this picture, it trailed through my mind that this little one reminds me of your dinosaurs!

    That’s a lovely green plant in the background. Do you know the name of it?

    Have a great day, Margaret! Greetings from Earth’s other side, Jean

  • Hi Jean, thank you for thye nice comment! I think the green plant might be an Agapanthus.

    Thank you for the identity of the plant. I’ve been reading about them. They bloom! The leaves on your son’s plant are almost as stunningly beautiful as the kangaroo. I’m going to add Agapanthus to my wish list for my garden next warm season. I enjoy dreaming of flowers as I begin my cold weather season.

    Maybe I dream of the kangaroo too but I doubt that will EVER come to fruition. :))

    It’s a great capture of a roo Margaret. It’s looks completely unafraid. I am just wondering how close you were and if you used a zoom lens.

  • Thanks for the comment Albert. The roos are fairly tame, and will accept food from us, but at a short distance. I was about 2 mtrs away, on the other side of a pool style fence. No zoom, 55mm lens used.
