Encounters of the furry kind

Straying from my usual type of blog entry, but I thought these were too lovely to not share.

I needed to de-stress after a busy day yesterday and had the option:  Gym? Or take my son’s camera to Anstey Hill Recreation Park and go for a wander around to find some photographic models of the furry kind?

I rarely go bushwalking these days just to wander and take photos, I’m usually following a map, looking out for trail markers or just pushing myself along the trail to get a good dose of exercise in.  Slowing down and looking for wildlife yesterday was just what I needed, and I was really happy with these 3 photos that came out of it.

I saw a lot of kangaroos in the 30 minutes I was out there – mostly mums with their joeys. I did come across a big buck but as he was watching closely over one of the mums and her youngster, I backed off and let them all have a bit of space.

And all this costs nothing really – nature is all around us and free for us to enjoy.  Thank you to everyone who shares snippets of nature in their corner of the world – I hope you enjoy a bit of mine.
