Title: 20090107 – DSC05633 – Googong Roo d
Location: Googong Dam, NSW, Australia
This closeup was taken with a zoom, though it was still rather close. The kangaroos at Googong Dam, (on the outskirts of Queanbeyan, NSW and right across the border from Canberra, ACT), are often visible from a medium to long distance, however, on occasion, they can be as close as 5-10 m away from the public path, as was the case with this shot. This is because they are used to lots of people being around for picnics, walks, jogging, & since 2010 (when the floods came, after the decade or so long drought) – fishing again.
