I tiptoed sheepishly towards this lovely creature. Taking one small step at a time, getting nearer, half kneeling and putting on my nervous smile for the camera. Yet the attempt for a close-up classic Australian photo of myself and a kangaroo grazing the green wet grass failed miserably. The beautiful kangaroo, sensing an unwelcomed aura, stared right at me, innocently yet at the same time, mildly annoyed of having his meal interrupted. Then it hopped away with its powerful hind legs, so gracefully. Within seconds, the kangaroo was out of my sight.
Despite this minor failure, I am ever so grateful for the numerous photos of such amazingly crafted creatures. And what’s more, a photo of a napping koala with its face hidden. That’s a bonus!
