[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
An Eastern Grey Kangaroo finds a little relief from a flea. Kangaroos are marsupials. That means they nurse their young in a pouch until they are old enough to fend for themselves. The Eastern Grey weighs on average 66kg and stands almost 2m tall and typically inhabits the moist, fertile regions of southern Australia.

Hi Steve,
what a great moment you've caught, the DOF is spot on and the inclusion of the slightly blurred Kangeroo in the BG going about his business is really nice. Contrast is good as are the colours too. A good observation.

good capture of a moment and since he is stealing the attention i would exclude the other and cropped around him. just a thought.

This is very cute Steve. so OZ is is then. You can't miss out there this time of year. Is this an older photo? Or are you back in OZ? Whatever it is your work is something nice to behold.


Hi Steve and Ioana,
Great capture of these two beauties! Good sharpness and details and wonderful pose of the one scratching himself! Nice natural colours too! Well done and TFS
Cheers Tina :-)

Hello Steve!

A nice shot. But I don't like its composition. There is a lot of empty space on right and quite non on left.

Hello Steve,
Funny moment well captured!
Good colours and details, and the strange behaviour of this fine animals are well captured!
