A trio of tree roos
As is always the way, the interesting stuff appears while I am without good lenses. Last night a red triangle slug (more of that in a later post) and today a couple of Lumholtz's tree kangaroos (mum and joey) close to the house.
Of course, spotting them would be easier if they came with yellow frames
Not particularly impressed with the cheap lens
In search of more food
Time to try a different spot
They can move quite quickly
Mum and joey share the limelight
Joey gets camera shy, while mum has a scratch
Male tree roo photographed with the telephoto lens before it went in for cleaning. (The lens, that is, not the roo.)
You can see why I'm looking forward to getting the lenses back. Also, why I like living here.
