...you're a brave man Jim to get close enough to get a great picture like that.

Wonder how close he was in reality Larry, some serious gear out there these days

Hey Jim

Perhaps you should make this thread, or start another, with "Best Caption for this Photo"?

Several great responses so far !

I'll offer :  "Don't even think about it!!!"
Wherever you go ..... there you are!

Great picture Jim !

I donīt even have a "real" camera here anymore, what did you shoot this one with?

Jan the camera is a Nikon D850 and the lens I had on was a Nikon 200-500mm.

Kangaroo's aren't really dangerous, though you do need to be careful and definitely steer clear of the lone male bucks.

The kangaroos we have are Eastern greys, the females are a lot smaller than the males, the males look like they take steroids they are so muscly.

Around our home they are skittish, but they have become used to our presence. You'd never get this close to the roo's even just a couple of kilometres in the bush from us.

We have a lot of Wallabies around us as well, they are super skittish and you can't get within a 100 metres of them.

West of us (we are right on the coast) are the really big red roo's, they dwarf the eastern grey roo's by a large margin.

These photos (I've posted these before) are our at our front door (between our home and the lake) there can be dozens of roo's out on our lawn at night keeping the grass down, the growl and kick the hell out of each
other all night.

Handsome fellow but if you can get violated by a hedgehog I certainly stay away from 'Roos.
