Hi Les. An absolutely beautiful shot. The background is really impressive to the Roo. You can almost feel the suns rays in this. Great sharpness and bang-on focus. It's off-set nicely for framing. It's an adorable Kangaroo and would make a good tourism poster for Australia. I love it! TFS Trevor

Hello Les.
This shot is amazing with so much details to see. The natural tone is pleasing with excellent sharpness in the frame.

Helllo Les,
Not an animal often seen here on TN. Nice to see this healthy looking mother with her little Joey snug in her pouch. The vertical framing was a must for this shot and works out really well. Attractive pose showing her facial expression and unique body features. Well done!!
