Best kangaroo photo EVER!

Finalist photo in National Geographic Contest 2011.   

This would be one of the best photos I have seen of a kangaroo - and being Australian, we get to see a lot of photos of kangaroos!   

Love it.  

The photographer has captured the joey beautifully and provides a totally different perspective.

  1. Beautiful photography. Certainly better than my kangaroo photos. Wish I could hang out with such a photographer and learn tricks of the trade.

  2. Absolutely the cutest pic I've seen in a long time. Thanks for sharing :)

    1. Thanks for comments Jennifer & Caravanning Around Australia. I loved that photo the minute I saw it, and definitely a worthy contender to be in the National Geographic Best Photos of the Year. I too, wish I could capture that sort of photo.

  3. spectacular, wish everyone would see just how truly magnificent these animals truly are
