Foresters Mom and Joey at Twilight

Eastern Grey (Forester) Kangaroo, Narawantapu National Park, Tasmania, AustraliaLast Friday I posted a pademelon mom and her joey. This is a proper kangaroo and her joey — the eastern grey kangaroo, known locally in Tasmania as the forester. I saw probably fifty or sixty of these guys late afternoon in Narawantapu National Park on the northern border of Tasmania.

    Love the purple hue that hangs in the sky above these two remarkable cretures. Very nice, Sean!
