Red-necked Wallaby Joey

Red-Necked Wallabies and their baby joeys are a sight that we see on a daily basis at our property in rural south-east Queensland.  On this day, I had been sitting down near a small dam on our property, taking in the view, when this beautiful wallaby with joey in-pouch came close-by the dam for a drink. They weren't too sure about me watching them and they waited until I left before they had their drink on this very hot summers day.

We love Australian Wildlife and feel blessed that we can see these beautiful creatures in our own backyard regularly.

  1. Great photo of the wallaby with the joey in the pouch. The joey looks almost big enough to get out and hop around - I hope you see them again and get more photos.

    1. Thankyou - while we see them regularly, they can often be hard to capture, especially the joeys in the pouch. I am in agreement, this one is almost ready to be kicked out of the pouch. I will try and capture more. Thanks for the comment.

    1. Thankyou - if only the grass wasn't in the way, the joey would have been clearer to see though.

    1. Thanks Cynthia, yes we are very lucky. yes the baby is so cute and comfy in the mothers pouch - sometimes the pouches look so heavy though, I do feel sorry for the poor mum lugging big joeys around! Thanks for your comment.
