[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I lucked out in Aussie. Some people spend months looking for wild life in and around the country. Within a week of landing I was face to face with a Kangaroo, excited by a 'hairy huntsman', swimming with a Red Bellied Black Snake, and snapping pics if this guy.
For the life of me I have no idea how Jana spotted him from the car at 80km/h; as he sat about 30ft up a tree... But she did, and I was able to get this angle on him (her?)
