Wallabies & a Joey in pouch 25/07/11

Over the last month or so, due to the harsh frosts and lack of rain over winter, the "green feed" is becoming more and more scarce for our local wallabies and Eastern Grey Kangaroos.  Daily now we witness the wallabies coming close to the roads edge in search for food, sadly we have seen many casualties in the last few weeks, many with joeys that have succumbed to the same fate of their mother sadly.

We delight in watching these beautiful red-necked wallabies graze happily at Jarowair.  These photos were taken on my little camera that I keep in my bag for "photo emergencies", on the way home late one afternoon.  I just had to get a photo of this gorgeous wallaby with a rather young (still furless) joey in pouch.

You can just see the little Joey having a look out of its mother's pouch.
